Temperatures could fall as low as 25 degrees in some East County mountain and desert areas – cold enough to freeze pipes and sensitive plants. High winds are also forecast across inland valleys, with gusts up to 75 miles per hour.

Light showers and snowfall fell at higher elevations today, with additional precipitation expected through 10 p.m. tonight and icy roads likely.

A small craft advisory is in effect off San Diego’s coast, with a gale warning off the coast of Orange and Los Angeles Counties to the north.
