Snow in Los Angeles??

A cold storm system will bring a threat of snow showers to Southwest California through the evening, with snow
levels locally falling to 1500 feet or lower.

There is the potential for brief snow showers in some areas that rarely see snow, such as the higher valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, foothills, and Santa Monica mountains.

Many roads will be affected due to the very low-elevation snow levels.

Total snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, highest in the foothills. Snow levels lowering to 1500 to 2000 feet during the day.

  1. We just ended about 24 solid hours of snowfall here in the warmest part of Utah, around St. George, this afternoon. Very light snow, and temps only a few degrees below freezing last night, so we only accumulated 3 or 4 inches, but that’s the only time in the 20 years I’ve been here that it has snowed continuously for more than a few hours.

    It’s usually pretty balmy here, good golf weather, after about January 15th, but we have hardly had a break in below normal temps since Thanksgiving. The average high temperature for this date (Feb. 21st) is either 61 or 62. We’ve been in the high 30s or low 40s for highs most of the winter, and while snow here is pretty rare, it snowed twice this week, with just a couple of nice days between snows. That’s climate change for you.

  2. It snowed fairly regularly when I was growing up in Los Angeles County – in Sun Valley and Burbank in the foothills. They don’t realize that the “global warming” man has created there is called asphalt and concrete and it does warm the climate.
