The Southland is bracing for another cold Pacific winter storm bringing rain and snow, which is expected to roll in Sunday evening and last through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm is forecast to bring heavy snow of four to eight inches at snow levels as low as 2,500 to 3,000 feet, according to the NWS.

The snow could significantly impact travel along Interstate 5, in particular the Grapevine area once again, the NWS said. Travel on mountain roads including Interstate 5, 2 and 14 could be very difficult or impossible, just as the most recent storm proved.

Snowfall is also likely across the Antelope Valley Monday, especially in the foothills.

Preliminary rain estimates are forecast at up to one-quarter inch across Los Angeles County. Sustained winds on Monday were expected to range from 20 to 40 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 40 to 60 miles per hour, according to the NWS.

A winter storm watch is in effect now through Monday afternoon, according to the weather service.
