A cold front moving into the Southland this weekend will drive afternoon temperatures below normal, with overnight lows expected in the mid 40s along much of the Los Angeles coast.
The storm also brings a 60 percent chance of rain Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
From one-tenth to one-quarter inch of rain will fall in Los Angeles County, the Weather Service foecasters said. The showers will taper off overnight Saturday, and with the exception of some lingering chances of rain over East Los Angeles, the sun will shine across much of Los Angeles on Sunday.
Temperatures, however, will remain cool.
"Sunday night will be the coldest night of the forecast with some pockets of mid 30s expected in some coastal and near coastal valley areas," forecasters said.
The cold temperatures will generate snow at elevations as low as 3,500 feet. Total snowfall, however, will stay below advisory levels and in the 1-3 inch range, according to the Weather Service.
For New Year's Day, expect partly cloudy skies and dry conditions. Highs in the low 60s are forecast Tuesday for most of the Westside and South Bay.
