Weekend storm could dump snow and rain on Southern California; motorists urged to be ready


LOS ANGELES — Southern California's suffering ski resorts could get a healthy dose of snow this weekend as a storm moves through the region.

The National Weather Service says up to a foot of snow could fall from Saturday through Monday in the San Bernardino and Angeles national forests. That follows a spell of dry weather that had some ski resorts talking about closing.

The storm could bring fog, blowing snow and icy conditions to mountain roads, including the Cajon Pass northeast of Los Angeles, the Tejon Pass north of town and State Route 14 in the Antelope Valley.

Caltrans is urging motorists to carry chains, blankets, food and water.

The storm also could dump a half-inch of rain at lower elevations.
