A storm system that forecasters are calling the coldest of the season is moving into Southern California Tuesday, bringing rain and snow to the region.


The storm will drop mostly light precipitation through Wednesday before moving out of the area, according to the National Weather Service.

Rainfall totals are expected to be between .10 and .25 inches, except for areas where there is a chance of thunderstorms, bringing up to .50 inches of rain.

Video showed heavy rainfall falling in Montclair at 4:30 a.m. Showers were falling even earlier in the La Verne area.

The bigger story with Tuesday’s storm will be the cold temperatures, which will allow snow to fall at very low elevations.

Many valley areas could see temperatures dropping into the 30s and low 40s, with 20s in the far inland areas, including the Antelope Valley.

A winter weather advisory has been issued from 6 a.m. Tuesday through noon Wednesday for Los Angeles and Ventura county mountain areas, as well as the Apple and Lucerne valleys, and the Santa Ana mountains and foothills.
