in areas such as Idyllwild, Pine Cove and Vista Grande.

The report urges area residents and travelers heading into the mountains to be careful and to prepare for hazardous driving conditions that will likely be the result of slick roads and reduced visibility.

Those residents are encouraged to carry with them chains, extra food and clothing.

Precipitation is expected to last through Tuesday, according to an extended forecast from the service.
