Monday was unseasonably warm in Southern California with widespread temperatures in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas in the 90s. But a storm forming in the Gulf of Alaska brings about huge changes by late week.

As the storm drops south it becomes noticeably cooler Wednesday and Thursday and colder Friday. By Friday high temperatures will be as much as 30 degrees lower than Monday.

Along with the change to colder temperatures there is also likely to be a little rain and mountain snow. Precipitation amounts will be light but will just add to the stark change to the weather early in the week. Snow levels by Friday drop to near 5,000 feet. No widespread travel problems are expected however because of the light nature to the snowfall.
