A major winter storm moved into Southern California overnight Saturday, bringing flood warnings and powerful winds in some areas.
Rain totals topped 7 inches in some Ventura County mountain areas and more than an inch in Beverly Hills and parts of Hollywood Hills. Totals were less than 0.5 inch in other areas of the Los Angeles Basin. Wind gusts topped 50 mph in Ventura County and parts of the Central Coast.
“Significant travel delays possible with accumulating snow on several mountain roads. This could include the Tejon Pass and Grapevine area of Interstate 5,” the National Weather Service said in a statement.
Rain began late Saturday, with 1 to 3 inches overnight across the coast and valleys and as much as 6 inches near the foothills. Unlike the storm earlier this week that blasted through Northern California but petered out before hitting Los Angeles, this storm is expected to be much steadier.
