LOS ANGELES (AP) - It's a snow day for many students in Southern California mountain communities.

A Winter Storm Warning is posted Tuesday for mountains stretching from northwest of Los Angeles, east through the inland counties and south through San Diego County.

In the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains, several school districts have canceled classes due to the weather.

The National Weather Service says the snow level is expected to fall as low as 2,500 feet in the morning and down to 2,000 feet Tuesday night.

The low snow levels could impact highway travel including Interstate 5 over Tejon Pass, near what is referred to by travelers as the Grapevine.
