The threat of rain and snow continued to loom over the Southland on Sunday, but the wet and icy weather was expected to clear out by this morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Big Bear Lake saw some snow flurries Sunday afternoon but most of the other local ski resorts saw little of the white stuff.
The snowfall led to chain restrictions on Highway 18 heading into Big Bear Lake early Sunday and then Sunday evening heading into the Lake Arrowhead area, according to California Highway Patrol reports.
Snow levels were still expected to drop Sunday night from about 6,000 feet to about 3,500 feet, according to AccuWeather.com.
There were reports of rain in the Cajon Pass along the 15 Freeway on Sunday evening, but no reports of snow.
Small amounts of rain, amounting to less than a tenth of an inch in most areas, fell in the morning hours Sunday morning, NWS meteorologist David Sweet said.
"What went through overnight was a cold front. Behind the cold front is some unstable air," he said Sunday.
There were reports of short bursts of heavy rainfall in Fontana, Ontario and in areas of San Bernardino and Rancho Cucamonga.
Heavy snow was reported by the CHP on Sunday in the Angeles National Forest between Mill Creek Summit and Big Tujunga.
But Sweet said the storm system is on track to move out of the area by today, "but it might be kind of windy in the morning."
Winds of 15 to 25 mph are expected in Los Angeles County, with local gusts reaching 35 mph in the hills, Sweet said.
Winds in the mountains, deserts and foothills of San Bernardino County were predicted to reach 40 mph or faster late Sunday.
The weather will begin to warm once the storm system has cleared the area today, but not for long as rain and snow are being predicted later this week.
"Another storm system moves in for another 40 percent chance of showers Thursday," Sweet said.
