A pair of Pacific storms are pacing toward the Southland this week with the possibility of snow, gusty winds, and raindrops in the region.

According to the National Weather Service, sections of L.A. could see rain after midnight tonight, with scattered showers into Wednesday. The snow level is expected around 4,500 ft., with four to eight inches of accumulation possible above 6,000 ft.

Blowing snow and zero visibility warnings prompted a winter weather travel advisory, and NWS forecasters say local mountain areas should be on alert from 11 p.m. Tuesday until 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Depending on the system's trajectory, a followup event is possible later in the week when the sky stands to pour precipitation Thursday night into Friday, with more wind and snow possible.
