LOS ANGELES (AP) - A series of powerful winter storms left behind frigid temperatures, pockets of hail and icy mountain roads in Southern California.

Motorists are urged to use caution Tuesday along the Tejon Pass, where interstate lanes are slick from a continued dusting of snow.

Schools are closed for a second day in mountain communities east of Los Angeles because of deep snow.

Temperatures are below freezing in foothills and desert areas north of LA.

To the north officials warn of continuing avalanche danger at all elevations of the Sierra Nevada.

At least four people died during the weekend system that swamped roads and trapped motorists.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday declared a state of emergency for 50 counties drenched by December and January storms.
