LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rain, wind and snow is expected to hit Southern California as a storm system moves into the region.

The National Weather Service says the brunt of the storm is expected to be felt during a six-hour period Sunday morning and afternoon, when as much as two inches of rain could fall in coastal and valley areas, and up to three inches of rain in foothill and mountain areas.

A flash flood warning was issued for recently burned areas.

Forecasters also warned of strong winds gusting as high as 70 mph and treacherous road conditions along Interstate 5 near the Grapevine due to snow, icy roads and winds.

The storm is also expected to create high surf along west and northwest-facing beaches and choppy seas.
