  1. But………..Dr. Viner told us there would be no more snow.
    He could not have known about solar minimums, increasing cosmic rays and increasing cloud cover.
    Pity.

  2. Freeze warnings almost to Malibu,CA tonite as well. Another winter storm to impact central Plains to Wisconsin.

  3. It is “Snowing” today in RIALTO CALIFORNIA, about 45 air miles east of Downtown Los Angeles !

    1st time since 1990 !!!

    Snow is beginning to move into the Valleys, this is a record event…

    Un-Real !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Snow in Los Angeles??

    National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA Feb 21 2019 –

    …COLD STORM SYSTEM WITH VERY LOW SNOW LEVELS THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING…

    A cold storm system will bring a threat of snow showers to
    Southwest California through the evening. This storm system will
    likely bring the lowest snow levels of the season, with snow
    levels locally falling to 1500 feet or lower later today. While
    the highest probability of snow accumulations will be in the areas
    covered under the winter weather advisory, 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 by due to the very low elevation snow levels.

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

  5. Am in far So. Arizona, and we’re on “Cold Snap #5” with snow above 3000′, and the northern half of AZ virtually shut down with snow measured in feet. So. CA cities seeing snow for the first time. (see link below). Russian scientists said the ‘little ice age’ started ~2014, no doubt the Sun has gone into a “solar minimum” which the last one, the Dalton Minimum, ended appx 1830, after 40-50 yrs. Other ‘grand’ solar minimums went anywhere from 70-150 yrs. So in America, hardly anyone was living west of the Appalachians when the last one ended. My view is it’ll take 3-4 more winters like this one to convince people something BIG is afoot, and when it finally sinks in, and God forbid it gets worse (Full-on Ice Age), financial markets will be the first ones to violently react. https://theweek.com/speedreads/825147/cities-across-southern-california-something-rare-snow
