Crescenta Valley residents need to keep their umbrellas out for a little longer, and maybe get out those really thick sweaters.
“Snow levels can come down to 1,000 feet,” said David Gomberg, meteorologist at the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) in Oxnard.
Before the snow Crescenta Valley will see rain, about one and a half to two inches of rain on Friday night.
“You will have a pretty good chance of rainfall on Friday from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.,” Gomberg said.
There is a slight chance of rain on Thursday but the majority is expected on Friday. The initial storm will bring snowfalls the 4,000-foot level.
“Then on Friday night the temperatures are expected to drop to around freezing, 32 degrees [Fahrenheit],” Gomberg said.
The snow depends on how much moisture drops in those early morning hours but Saturday morning is going to be cold. There will be snow showers on and off throughout Saturday.
