Strong Pacific storm expected to drench Inland freeways, bring snow to local ski resorts
By Staff report
Winter weather has finally arrived – and with it, all of the potential havoc for a typically arid region getting unaccustomed rain.
The morning and evening commutes could be a nightmare Tuesday, Jan. 9, as a quick-hitting storm pummels the rain-deprived Southland.
Most of San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles counties will likely receive more than an inch of rain, including about two inches along the coasts, forecasters say.
And the mountains could receive their first snow of the season that, on the calendar anyway, starts in October but has been notably replaced by dry weather and out-of-control wildfires.
