Storm dropped snow, but most at upper elevations…again

A large, fast-moving storm system hit Southern California Sunday, dumping up to a foot of snow on throughout the San Gabriel mountain range. That included Mt. Baldy, above, where significant snow fell above 6500 feet elevation. This trend over the past two years in particular, has warmer temperatures reducing snow coverage to less than 20 inches since the fall 2021. The normal snowfall per year is 33 inches. In the Claremont area, up to an inch of rain fell, more toward the foothills. Look for a sunny but cool weekend, with clear skies and high temperatures around 60 degrees.
