A cold front moves into Southern California this week when temperatures plummet, winds pick up and a storm sweeps across the region.

Most of the area can expect at least partly sunny skies Monday before the winter weather system moves in. Rain and snow in mountain communities will wrap up early ahead of a cool day.

"We have another storm moving in on Tuesday, and that one is going to bring some damaging winds," said NBC4 forecaster Belen De Leon. "Also, a possibility of light rain and some mountain snow."

Highs will top out Monday in the low 60s for most areas. That's a stark contrast from one week ago, when Southern California saw highs in the upper 70 and 80s.

On Tuesday, light morning rain is possible, but only about 0.10 inches.

Snow levels will drop to 2,000 feet. Gusts up to 80 mph are possible in the mountains with max winds of up to 60 mph in valleys and along the coast.

Low temperatures will dip into the 30s and 40s in valleys and on the coast.
