A Rain/Snow Ends Bitter Cold Remains
Snowy conditions caused the closure of the I-5 and Hwy early Saturday. After being open for several hours CHP officials once again closed HWY 58 which remains closed at of 7:30 Saturday evening. Another morning of extremely cold weather is on tap Sunday with lows in the low to mid 20s on the valley floor and teens in the mountains. Snow levels are predicted to be unusually low- around 1,000'. A HARD FREEZE WARNING remains in effect through Tuesday morning. Lows expected to remain in the lower 20s. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect for the Kern mountains. That will translate to a total of 3-7" of snow in the mountains above 1,500'. 1-3" are expected above 1,000', which will include the Lake Isabella area. Desert locations will see the threat for gusty winds end. The central valley will then probably encounter fog in the forecast for the end of the 10-day period.
