LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - Snow was reported around Los Angeles on Thursday in areas such as West Hollywood, Malibu, Northridge and Pasadena.
According to the National Weather Service, there have been multiple reports of small hail, graupel, and even a few snowflakes down to around 1500`. NWS said that this is expected to continue through the afternoon then start winding down in the evening as the air mass stabilizes.
"Upslope showers near the Grapevine will likely continue off and on through the overnight hours but with minimal additional accumulation," NWS said in Thursday afternoon's forecast discussion.
After the clouds and showers dissipate, temperatures will begin to fall to near or below freezing levels across many valleys and some areas closer to the coast as well, NWS said.
As of 1250hrs, snow is falling at the 1500’ level in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu, CA. Roads will be slippery. Please drive safely! #LAweather @NWSLosAngeles @CHPWestValley @CaltransDist7 pic.twitter.com/jrgxlGg4Vr— LACoFireAirOps (@LACoFireAirOps) February 21, 2019
