Skies Clear, but Snow Snarls Traffic in California

Southern California skies turned clear and cold, Friday, December 27, in the aftermath of a powerful winter storm, but sections of a major highway remained closed due to snow, ice and traffic accidents. Accidents caused massive morning backups on icy State Route 14, a major commuter route between Los Angeles and high desert cities in the snow-blanketed Antelope Valley.

Other high desert routes had similar problems. A closure of Interstate 5 that began Christmas night continued in the mountains north of Los Angeles on the notorious Grapevine section of the key highway through towering Tejon Pass. (AP)
