The National Weather Service is calling for a snow level of 6,000 feet, so there could be even more of the white stuff to get your skiing, sledding, snowboarding, or whatever it is you do in the snow on.
And while it’s always great to get much needed rain in Southern California, the roads were already expected to be a mess with a record number of travelers headed out for the holidays.
Be careful out there and drive safe!
