After a weekend in which two storms moved through Southern California, forecasters said the weather for the coming workweek would be chilly and windy but mostly dry.

The Los Angeles area was expected to see temperatures in the mid-60s on Monday, about six degrees cooler than usual for this time of year, said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

In the mountains of Los Angeles County, temperatures were forecast to hover in the 40s and 50s, with powerful winds that could reach as high as 60 mph. The strongest winds were expected along the 5 Freeway in the Grapevine, which could also see up to an inch of snow by Monday morning.

For the rest of the week, temperatures will oscillate between the mid-60s to the low 70s in the coastal areas. The coming weekend is expected to see slightly warmer-than-usual temperatures in the low 70s, Seto said.


Over the weekend, two storms soaked the Southland and brought as much as 4 inches of snow to higher elevations.

Torrance received more than a half-inch of rain, and Woodland Hills, Northridge and Simi Valley each saw roughly a quarter-inch. Downtown L.A. saw just over a 10th of an inch.

Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties saw the heaviest showers, with Pismo Beach recording more than 1.2 inches.
