    AM Forecast: Lingering Showers, Snow

    A late-season storm is moving out. Shanna Mendiola has the forecast for Wednesday May 2, 2018. (Published Wednesday, May 2, 2018)

    A winter weather advisory remains in effect for mountain communities east of Los Angeles as a late-season storm moves out of the area.

    One to two inches of snow are expected above 5,500 feet, with some areas receiving up to 6 inches. The advisory is expected to expire by midday Wednesday as the cold spring storm moves through the region.

    In Los Angeles County, Wednesday's rainfall will be spotty, as it was Tuesday. The two wettest spots in LA. County Tuesday were both in the San Gabriel Mountains --  Whitaker Peak got .26 of an inch of rain and Crystal Lake .24.

    Simi Valley in Ventura County received .60 of an inch, and Bard Lake, a Simi Valley body of water also known as Wood Ranch Reservoir, got .68.

    Orange County also received little rain from Tuesday's showers and roughly the same is in the cards Wednesday.

    Late-season weather systems aren't unheard of, but one factor that has been a surprise is that snow has been falling in the San Bernardino Mountains this late in the year.

    Temperatures, meanwhile, will continue to be below normal. Temperatures will be up to 11 degrees higher Thursday with partly cloudy skies forecast in L.A. County and sunshine in Orange County.
