BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - Several inches of snow fell on Southern California mountains, bringing joy to ski resorts and cautions for motorists.

Chains are required Saturday on several roads leading to the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains.

A storm Friday dropped six inches at higher elevations and brought rain, hail and thunderstorms elsewhere.

Closer to Los Angeles, the Mountain High ski resort in Wrightwood got more than two inches of snow just in time for the weekend.

The National Weather Service says daytime temperatures in the mountains will stay in the 30s through the weekend.

More snow is predicted as another storm moves in late Sunday.
