A  very cold upper-level low pressure system originating from the Gulf of Alaska is predicted to bring thunderstorms, snow, hail and rain to Southern California on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Chance of precipitation for Tuesday is 80 percent.

Snow levels may lower to 2,000 feet in some locations which may impact the Grapevine over the I-5 freeway between the Santa Clarita Valley and Bakersfield and Highway 14 between the SCV and the Antelope Valley.

High surf warnings will also be in effect through Thursday morning as a result of predicted gale force winds.

In advance of the predicted snow and icy road conditions the Los Angeles County Public Works Department has advised it will close public access to the following road segments in the Angeles National Forest effective Tuesday at 3 a.m.:

-- Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon Road to Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2)

-- Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Vogel Flats

-- Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2)

Local access will not be permitted until the road closures are lifted. The closures will remain in effect until the storm system has passed and the roads have been inspected.

Residents and motorists are urged to visit the CARE website at for further updates on road conditions, or sign up to receive instant notifications through Public Works’ eNotify system at
