LOS ANGELES (AP) — California continues cold, with scattered mountain snow showers and gusty winds in some areas making driving conditions potentially hazardous.

The National Weather Service says a new freeze warning will go into effect in the San Joaquin Valley early Saturday, and subfreezing temperatures are also expected in some Central Coast counties.

Gale warnings and small craft advisories are posted along the entire coast.

After a warm start to February, temperatures plunged this week with the arrival of a very cold air mass from Canada. Another is expected to drop out of British Columbia next week, but forecasters say the systems will continue to bring very little moisture.
