Cold Spring Storm Brings More Snow to Southern California and Sierra Nevada


NBC Los Angeles reports:

Another spring storm dumped measurable rain and mountain snow in Southern California as locals were met with yet another gloomy weekend.

The storm crept into SoCal Friday and lingered through Sunday evening. With it came widespread showers, thunderstorms, gusty conditions and wintry weather in high elevations. In addition to the wet weather, the storm also caused below-normal temperatures.

Some of the snowfall totals recorded were up to 2 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard:

    • Pine Mountain Club – 2 inches
    • Cuddy Valley – 2 inches
    • Mountain High – 1 to 2 inches
    • Lockwood Valley – 1 inch
    • Frazier Park – 1 inch

Further North, the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab mentioned on its Facebook page:

We received 1.8″ (4.5 cm) of #snow in the last day. Our season total snowfall is now 357″ (907 cm), only 3″ (8 cm) away from our annual median!

Fortunately, the heavy, wet snow that we got this year means that we already hit above average snow water equivalent.
