Stormy weather causes havoc in the Southland

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sunny skies today will help dry out Burbank and the rest of the Southland from some very stormy weather. We got slammed by a cold Pacific storm that swooped down from Alaska and rolled through our area yesterday. Hundreds of accidents on the freeways.There were some evacuations in the communities burned by the wildfires, but residents there managed to get through it all without  any major mudslides or flooding.

 And the mountains got snow — down to around 15-hundred feet. Last night, snowfall shut down the Grapevine, a main artery between Northern and Southern California. At around 9:30 this morning, the CHP began escorting vehicles through that stretch of the I-5 freeway.

Last night the rain moved on, leaving behind gusty wind and some very cold temperatures. At around 11:30 p.m. last night, it was 35 in Woodland Hills, 39 Santa Clarita, 44 West Hollywood, 45 Long Beach, and 43 here in Burbank. Overnight, the temps in the valley dipped even lower, producing a coating of frost in some places.

The chilly temperatures are expected to linger for a few day. Oh, don’t put away those umbrellas, more rain could be headed our way by the end of the week.

    Do you delete people from blogs like the Jim Carlile does? I make a statement about how his numbers have dwindled drastically since Officer Dahlia’s lawsuit. The Professor stated that the people of Burbank know that Officer Dahlia is a honest and hardworking officer. Mysteriously, The Professor’s statement was deleted. I do believe you have more credibility than your blogger mate. Please put up more stories about the lawsuits or it is coming to an abrupt end?

    If you have a problem with the way Jim Carlile runs his blog you should direct your comments to him. I have my standards, and I have deleted posts from my blog.

    My blog covers a number of subjects, topics, and stories of interest.I’m following the events in Burbank and will post about developments in due time.
