There’s a chance of very low snow in the mountains north of Ojai this evening through tomorrow morning.
Here’s a winter weather advisory as of 3 p.m. Wednesday, from Bob Kilpatrick, Caltrans Ojai area supervisor:
“Current conditions on 33 — light and spotty rain throughout the area, with snow starting to fall from Pine Mountain Inn to just south of Lockwood Valley Road. Not sticking. No restrictions are in place at this time. Be prepared for possible chain requirements this evening. If I-5 over the Grapevine closes due to snow, SR 33 will be closed as well. The closure on SR 33 will be from Fairview Road in Ojai to SR 166 in New Cuyama.”
Kilpatrick said Caltrans crews will be on duty from now through the duration of the storm, from Ojai to Ventucopa.
According to the National Weather Service, the snow level will start out at just above 5,000 feet, then lower rapidly this evening to between 3,000 and 3,500 feet. The snow level will then lower to around 2,500 feet Thursday morning.
