Josh Kleinbaum Carlos Gutierrez sat at a table in front of Sbarro at the Glendale Marketplace, where the shade crept out and gave him some protection from the beating sun. Just after noon on Monday, Gutierrez sipped a cold drink from Starbucks, getting ready to take advantage of his day off and escape to the coast. "I'm going to the beach," Gutierrez said. "When it's hot like this, I try to stay indoors or go to the beach, or sometimes go to the movies."

A cold low-pressure system moving south should reach the Los Angeles area Thursday evening, bringing with it the chance of rain and cooler temperatures through Friday night, according to the National Weather Service. The system is expected to bring low-elevation snow to local mountains that could linger through Saturday, Andrew Rorke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told the L.A. Times. Snow levels could reach as low as 3,000 feet by Friday morning, which could create hazardous driving conditions, especially around Interstate 5 through the Grapevine, Rorke said.

Josh Kleinbaum Brad Hasse sat outside the C&C Business Center, an Internet cafe on Brand Boulevard, enjoying the rare break from a seemingly endless stream of sunny days. "I'm hoping this lasts as long as possible," Hasse said, looking up at the gray sky. "Gloomy weather is upbeat. It's refreshing. It's different than a sunny sky or a blue sky. It's got some personality." If gray skies mean personality, than Glendale's in for a few days of Jim Carrey.
