Better get those parkas ready, Los Angeles.
The five day forecast is calling for low’s in the high 30’s in downtown Los Angeles, with some areas like Pasadena dipping into the low 30’s by midweek (umm… if you’re planning on camping out for the Rose Parade… good luck with that!).
A frost advisory was actually issued overnight from Sunday into Monday and will stay into effect until 9am today with temperatures between 29 and 32 degrees for two or more hours through mid morning in areas like the Santa Monica Mountains.
Additionally, there are snow predictions for areas like Lancaster, Palmdale, and other parts of the Antelope Valley (yes, frackin’ snow predictions for Los Angeles County!).
Overall, the snow level in L.A. County is expected to drop to around 2,000 ft, per CBS Los Angeles:
“The biggest impact is forecast for the mountain freeway crossings north of Los Angeles as well as in the Antelope Valley cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, which are also expected to see accumulating snow, according to CBS2’s Kaj Goldberg. In those areas, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon.”
Bottom line, dress warmly, bring your pets indoors, and take all other practical steps to make sure you don’t freeze your butt off.
