A brief cold system is expected to move through the Southland beginning Sunday evening, bringing rain, snow and gusty winds.

The snow will fall as low as 3,000 feet, likely making for hazardous driving conditions along Interstate 5 and other mountain roads on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Showers are expected in most areas of the Southland on Monday before dry weather and slightly warmer temperatures return Tuesday and remain for the rest of the week.

“Most areas expected to receive between 0.10-0.33 inches of rain with upcoming storm later tonight into Mon. Local amounts up to 0.50 inches in the foothills and coastal slopes,” the NWS tweeted Sunday afternoon.

Wind gusts of 45 mph were expected late Sunday and Monday in the high desert, with gusts of 40 mph in the mountains.

A cold weather alert was also in effect through Monday for the mountains and the Antelope Valley, where temperatures will drop into the 20 and 30s at night.
