More rain, snow expected Monday in Southern California

More rain and snow was expected to continue Monday across Southern California.

Forecasters said scattered showers were expected to move into Los Angeles County Monday morning, with heavy rain at times, and last through the afternoon hours.

A second round of scattered rain was expected to follow Monday evening and into early Tuesday morning.

Lingering showers could last Tuesday, with the weather finally clearing Wednesday and Thursday.

The higher mountain passes will see snow late Monday and by Tuesday morning all of the passes will see accumulating snow, according to the National Weather Service.

Mountain locations in Los Angeles County could receive another 1 to 2 feet of snow with 9 to 18 inches falling in Ventura County and lesser amounts in Santa Barbara County mountains.

A Winter Storm Warning was issued for the Los Angeles and Ventura County mountains through early Wednesday.

The weekend rain left hillsides saturated and vulnerable to mudslides. A stretch of Topanga Canyon Boulevard was closed Monday in the Malibu area due to a mudslide and flooding, city officials said.

City officials urged residents to avoid Pacific Coast Highway until Monday and Tuesday's storms passed.
