The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation has announced the closure of several parks due to the impacts of rain and snow. Devil's Punchbowl Nature Area and Nature Center, Eaton Canyon Natural Area and Nature Center, Placerita Canyon Natural Area and Nature Center, and Vasquez Rocks Natural Area and Nature Center are all closed on Sunday.

Although skies were partially clear Sunday morning, travel in mountain areas was still hazardous throughout the day. The National Weather Service (NWS) advised caution for anyone attempting to navigate these areas.

Additionally, several highways were closed, including State Route 138 in northern LA County from I-5 to 190th Street West, State Route 2 in the Angeles National Forest from two miles north of I-210 to Vincent Gulch Road, and State Route 39 in the Angeles National Forest at East Fork Road.

Furthermore, several thousand people were still without power on Sunday due to weather-related outages.

As of midday, the southbound lanes on the 5 Freeway were open through the Tejon Pass, and Caltrans was preparing to open the northbound lanes.
