The forecast for Monday calls for strong winds and temperatures in the 30s, according to the weather service. All told, looking back at the expected range we had forecast from Tuesday night, I'm very pleased with how this one transpired, especially given the extremely hard forecast through all the transitions, the potency of the storm and the time of year.

The NWS forecast partly cloudy skies Monday and highs of 49 degrees on Mount Wilson; 58 in Lancaster; 60 in Palmdale and Saugus; 62 at LAX; 64 in Avalon, Pasadena, San Gabriel and Burbank; 65 in Downtown L.A and Long Beach; and 66 in Woodland Hills. Winds of 15-25 miles per hour will sweep those areas and be accompanied by 40 miles per hour gusts this afternoon and evening, according to NWS.

The weather service said the Council Bluffs-Omaha area was not expected to receive a measurable amount of snowfall. The temperature was reported at 39 degrees.

Bursts of snow showers could cause reduced visibility and slippery roads at times, the weather service said.
