First Alert Weather Alert: Winter storm brings rain and snow to Riverside County

The First Alert Weather Team has issued a First Alert Weather Alert through this afternoon as a winter storm moves into Southern California.

A strong cold front accompanied by an area of low pressure will slide through as we move into this afternoon.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 10 tomorrow morning. The main focus of this storm system is going to be the snow, as incoming cold air will drop levels down below 4,000'. Light accumulation is possible on I-15 through the Cajon Pass.

Chance showers are expected in the desert today. Up to a tenth of an inch of rainfall is possible for most valley cities.

Temperatures fall into the upper 50s for Monday and Tuesday, 10-15° below normal for this time of year. Warmer days are ahead by the end of the week.

This article will continue to be updated by the First Alert Weather Team until the end of the weather event.
