LOS ANGELES (AP) — Snowy, foggy weather in the Southern California mountains has closed an inland road and briefly slowed traffic on a major north-south freeway.

A low-pressure system moving through the area Monday morning could leave 3 inches of snow in some places and drop the snow level to 3,000 feet.

The National Weather Service says there’s also a chance of 25 mph winds with gusts of up to 45 mph in the mountains, foothills and valleys.

Foggy weather Monday morning blinded motorists in the Interstate 5 Grapevine area north of Los Angeles. The CHP escorted cars through the mountain pass for about 10 minutes before conditions improved.

In the San Gabriel Mountains, state officials closed a 10-mile segment of State Route 2 west of Wrightwood. The annual shutdown will last through winter.
