First Alert Weather Alert: showers linger with breezy conditions this morning

A low-pressure system is pulling out of the Golden State, and the wind, rain and mountain snow will gradually end.

The first weather alert that went into effect this morning was a Winter Storm Warning for Riverside and San Bernardino Mountains. Heavy snow and notable accumulation are expected above 5,000'. Snow levels will even drop near 4,000', or just below, later today.

While the Wind Advisory expired in the overnight, gusty winds had a huge impact on the Valley, with roads still closed as a result. Check out some of the strongest gusts recorded around the desert:

We saw a few areas of light showers yesterday, and today we could still see periods of light precipitation, but measurable rain will be minimal.

After quickly cooling into the 60s with the storm's arrival, temperatures will just as quickly warm up into the upper-70s and low-80s this weekend.
