The bulk of the slow-moving storm churning its way across the Southland should pass the local area by this afternoon, weather forecasters say.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the Angeles National Forest through 8 p.m. as those living in the foothills brace for what could be periods of heavy rain within the Station fire burn area.
Rain totals could reach up to 2 inches in some mountain areas, with the snow level dropping to between 5,500 and 6,500 feet through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
The unseasonably wintry storm is expected to clear out over night, leaving a slight chance of showers on Thursday.
Sun and mild temperatures should return on Friday through the weekend, according to the weather service. Daytime temperatures will also return to the low-80s.
