Californians deal with a cold snap

Records could fall as frost takes aim at beaches

SAN DIEGO — Californians are bundling up with sweaters and gloves and stocking up on firewood as they endure a winter storm that has brought very unseasonable freezing temperatures.

The National Weather Service said records could fall as the cold snap extends into the weekend. ‘‘It’s only going to get colder,’’ specialist Bonnie Bartling of the Weather Service said. ‘‘Early Sunday, you’re looking at possibly mid-30s in downtown Los Angeles.’’ Long Beach could see temperatures dip into the low 30s, she said.
