The snow shut down the /*Angeles National Forest*/ between Sierra Highway and Highway 2.
As temperatures warm up, a mix of snow and rain is expected to create a slushy mess on roads.
"We went from like having some pretty decent weather, and then all of a sudden, we got all of this snow," said Chris Storm, a Frazier Park resident.
The National Weather Service says snow is expected to fall at elevations as low as 3,500 feet, and some inland areas could feel wind gusts of up to 50 mph.
The /*Bear Valley Unified School District*/ is closed on Feb. 10 due to the snow, affecting the following schools:
- Big Bear Elementary School
- North Shore Elementary School
- Baldwin Lane Elementary School
- Fallsvale Elementary School
- Big Bear Middle School
- Big Bear High School
- Chautauqua High School
The rain moved eastward through the San Gabriel Valley on Monday morning.
The winter weather in Southern California since late last week has helped put a dent on California's drought. The statewide snowpack is 61 percent of average for this time of year.
The burned areas of Los Angeles County and Orange County are holding up despite the downpours. Crews cleaned up in Sierra Madre after a mudslide last week.
