It's beginning to feel a lot like winter in the Santa Clarita Valley.

A strong and cold storm system has moved into the SCV, bringing colder temperatures, rain and the chance of snow in upper elevations today and Sunday and into the middle of the week.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Central and Southwestern California Friday that will remain in effect until Thursday.

Strong winds will accompany the system and may cause hazards below passes and canyons, according to the service.

Rain could result in flash flooding and debris flow in areas burned by recent wildfires.

Snow levels could drop as low as 3,500 feet by tomorrow morning and 3,000 through midweek, creating hazardous driving conditions in the mountains.

The service predicts a 20 percent chance of showers today. North winds will increase tonight to between 23 and 25 mph, with gusts as high as 36 mph, and temperatures dropping to the upper 30s.

Sunday's forecast includes winds decreasing to 9 mph, a 30 per cent chance of rain and a high of just 49 degrees. By Sunday night, the chance of showers will increase to 50 percent, with a low around 40.
