Winds up to 80 miles per hour will blow a storm quickly through Los Angeles County Sunday evening, and light snow may still be falling over the Grapevine on  Monday morning.

The National Weather Service warned that sustained winds of 25-40 mph, and peak gusts of between 60-80 mph, could arrive along Interstate 5 over the Grapevine Sunday night and Monday morning.

A quarter of an inch of rain was held likely for the Los Angeles area early Sunday evening, probably blowing east at about 10 p.m. The snow level would start at 7,000 feet above sea level, then drop to 4,000 feet early Monday.

But strong winds behind the storm front were held likely to push fog and rain out of the San Joaquin Valley. That means the moisture-carrying winds hitting the San Gabriel Mountains might generate Monday morning rain and snow along the Grapevine.
