Winter storm conditions are forecast for the mountains northeast of Redlands and Loma Linda, where a massive manhunt was under way Thursday evening for Christopher Jordan Dorner, a Navy reservist fired by the LAPD wanted in connection with three killings, including a Riverside police officer.
Overnight lows in the Big Bear area Thursday into Friday could fall below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and below 10 degrees Friday into Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
Snow is likely tonight and tomorrow, forecasters said.
"A cold Pacific storm will bring significantly colder air to the region as well as lower elevation snow," the Weather Service advised in a winter weather statement. "Snow levels will quickly fall tonight to around 5,000 feet . . . before plunging on Friday to near 3,000 feet."
Showers are likely Thursday night in the Redlands-Loma Linda area with overnight lows in the mid 40s. Daytime highs Friday are expected to remain below 50, and overnight lows in the mid 30s Friday into Saturday.
