- Highway 2 was sealed by a San Gabriel Mountains, from 15 miles easterly of La Cañada Flintridge to 5 miles west of Big Pines.

I-15’s Cajon Pass, from a Mojave Desert into a Los Angeles area, had been sealed for most of Thursday though reopened in a afternoon. Interstate 8 in eastern San Diego County was also sealed for a time on Thursday.
In San Diego County, a newcomer died Thursday when a automobile veered off a snowy highway nearby Warner Springs and crashed into an embankment. The passenger, a 60-year-old woman, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and a motorist was going too quick to control a car, California Highway Patrol Officer Jeff Christy told KSWB-TV.
