LOS ANGELES (AP) - Health officials have issued a winter weather warning for Southern California mountains and valleys as an extremely cold winter storm approaches.

The Los Angeles County Public Health department is urging extra precaution for children, the elderly and people who are vulnerable during a cold snap.

The National Weather Service says a cold storm dipping into the region from Canada will bring showers and snow Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. Snow levels could drop to around the 2,000-foot level.

Forecasters say as much as six inches of snow could fall across interior mountain slopes.

Those who plan to camp out in Pasadena for the Rose Parade are advised to wear layers of clothing; overnight temperatures are expected to drop to 35 degrees.
