The sunshine that has hinted at spring in the Santa Clarita Valley will greet residents again Thursday morning, but by night a winter storm is expected to roll into the area, bringing a 60 percent chance of rain by 10 p.m.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from midnight Thursday through noon Saturday, with snow accumulations of four to eight inches above 5,000 feet and four inches or less below 5,000 feet.

Periodic road closures in the mountains are expected, including Interstate 5 through the Grapevine. The winter weather advisory was also extended to the Acton area.

Rain and intermingled sunshine are forecast through Friday, and temperatures will feel like winter again with highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s. Lows will be in the 30s Friday night.

The storm is due to move out of the area during the weekend, with partly cloudy skies Saturday and mostly sunny skies Sunday. But highs will remain in the 50s through Monday with lows in the 30s.
