Bundle up! Frost advisories across the San Fernando, San Gabriel and Santa Clarita valleys expired on Monday morning but chilly weather is expected to stick around until Saturday.

The National Weather Service is predicting a slight chance of showers on Monday and expects the rest of the week's weather to be clear and breezy with temperatures that are lower than normal for this time of year.

There is "another pathetic little cold front coming through the area today," said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service in a posted statement. "It just barely managed to squeeze out a few drops along the Central Coast but only a couple spots were able to measure [a tenth of an inch].... Today I can't imagine southern areas will have any better luck with the amounts, though can't rule out a sprinkle or two."

Sunday's low temperature of 36 degrees in downtown Los Angeles tied a record from almost 100 years ago, according to the NWS.

Severe storms in the Midwest have also affected the plans of travelers using Los Angeles International Airport this holiday season. LAX announced departing flights to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport were delayed until after 11 a.m. on Monday due to snow and ice there.

There's some good news on the horizon for those attending the Rose Parade on Friday: The National Weather Service says New Year's Day is expected to be cool but sunny with clear skies.
