Snow, wind, cold in store for Southern California

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California's in for cold, wind and snow as a winter weather front bears down through the weekend.

The National Weather Service says highs will only hit the 50s and low 60s Thursday, with a chance of light rain.

Winds could gust to 45 mph in valleys and coastal areas, with 60 mph gusts in the mountains and Antelope Valley.

North of Los Angeles, the California Highway Patrol is escorting traffic through the Grapevine area of Interstate 5 because of snow.

Forecasters say an inch or two of snow is possible in the mountains, with the level dropping to 2,000 feet.

There will be overnight frosts and freezes in colder valleys through the weekend.

Meanwhile, winds and high tides of nearly 7 feet Thursday morning may cause minor coastal flooding.
