More storms ahead: flows of mud and debris unlikely

Local mountains could see snow levels drop to 3,500 feet as a new colder storm front moves in today.

Rainfall totals should average approximately 1 inch, but could be higher in some areas. This new weather system is not expected to be as strong as the weekend storm that the pummeled the area, causing street flooding and toppling trees, according to the National Weather Service.

Still, up to 8 inches of snow could fall on local mountains, with the potential for more when a second storm front moves in late Thursday, according to the weather agency.

Los Angeles County public works officials on Tuesday also issued a notice reassuring foothill residents that mud and debris flows were unlikely, downgrading the previous warning for the weekend storm.
