Significant snowfall expected to begin Sunday evening will make travel difficult on Riverside County mountain roads, the National Weather Service warned Sunday.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 10 p.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Tuesday for areas above 4,000 feet, including Idyllwild and Pine Cove, the agency said.

Forecasters expect total snow accumulations of one to two inches between 4,000 to 5,000 feet, two to four inches between 5,000 to 6,000 feet, and four to eight inches above 6,000 feet.

“Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the evening commute on Monday,” the NWS said.

Other parts of the county will experience scattered showers and cool conditions through Monday night, forecasters said.

Clear skies are expected by Tuesday.

High temperatures Sunday were expected to be 59 degrees in Riverside, 65 degrees in Palm Springs, 57 degrees in Temecula and 47 degrees in Idyllwild.
