Round 2 of Cold, Windy Storm Sweeps into Southern California

May 15, 2015 10:07 AM

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A second round of rain from a rare spring storm has swept into Southern California, along with heavy winds, snow in the mountains and the possibility of hail and lightning.

The National Weather Service says scattered thunderstorms are expected from San Diego north to Ventura County as the brunt of the system moves on shore Friday morning.

Up to an inch of snow fell in San Bernardino Mountain communities, where drivers were urged to use caution.

The cold storm brought brief, heavy downpours to Los Angeles County and points east and south, dumping up to 1 ½ inches in some areas Thursday.

Firefighters rescued six motorists and a dog who became trapped in rushing water on a San Diego street, and they pulled a man from a flood control channel north of Los Angeles.
