The California Highway Patrol is bracing for another snow storm, and they want drivers to be ready for it. They say they are expecting it to blow in Wednesday, and it could cause as many problems for drivers as the last storm.

"These things can come in pretty fast and they can freeze over that summit, and no one can pass over it at that time," said Robert Shuck of the California Highway Patrol. "If you can delay your trip for that night, that would probably be the best option for you. And if you do come through here, make sure you have plenty of warm blankets, water and food in case you do get stuck."

Monday's storm brought in lots of fresh snow in mountain areas, giving many residents an excuse to go outside and enjoy the wintry conditions.

It was a chilly start to the morning, with some areas experiencing highs only in the 40s. Due to the weather, all classes in the Rim of The World Unified School District were canceled for the day.

Young Savanah Countryman and her brother came from Bakersfield so they could build their first snowman.

Typically, Frazier Park residents are used to these conditions, but so far this year, this was the most snow they've seen. Even with the morning's cold temperatures, the snow was already starting to melt.

On Monday, dangerous snowy conditions forced the Grapevine to close for nearly four hours, causing a traffic nightmare. But on Tuesday, the freeway looked much better.

And in Frazier Park, it was a day in the park for those who didn't have to get anywhere in a hurry.

Drivers were warned to take it slow on the roads. There were more than a dozen crashes reported in the Cajon Pass overnight. Some cars flipped over due to the icy conditions.
