LOS ANGELES — Powerful winds battered much of the Southland early Wednesday as the front end of a cold winter storm system moved into the area, giving the region a taste of the chilly temperatures, high winds, rain and snow to come — prompting a rare blizzard warning for the Los Angeles County mountains.

The blizzard warning will be in effect for the Los Angeles County mountains from 4 a.m., Friday to 4 p.m., Saturday. Forecasters said up to 5 feet of snow could accumulate in the mountains, accompanied by wind gusts topping 55 mph. Higher elevations could see as much as 7 feet of snow, with accumulations of 6 to 12 inches possible at elevations between 2,000 and 4,000 feet, “including most major mountain passes.”

So much for the Global Warming Con Job....Climate Change is for Idiots looking to milk the taxpayers...Lets be clean as possible ...but not Idiots (think Democrats) about it. When you are clueless about how things operate...many grifters turn to issues like Wokeness, and Climate Change, and that men can get pregnant...lol lol If you are in that camp...you are there because of "Free Money" and you are a sell-out...And no doubt embarrassed (unless you are High).
