It is snowing in parts of San Bernardino County. It is quite rare, but very exciting for those who encounter it.

I know a couple of days ago we set a high temp record, and now a couple days later, might have set a cold temp record. Crazy!

I was thinking the same thing. Hope that your roads don't freeze. If you're riding the two-wheeler and they stay wet you should be fine.......... if they freeze, then

I got a call from my friend in Riverside WAKING me this morning to tell me about the almost inch of snow she had in her yard... Right now I have a foot of it and the streets are paved with ice and we are stuck on our hill here in Western Washington... I promised to send her what was in my yard if she let me go back to sleep.... She replied with...whoops Nevermind... and hung up!!! LOL..

I remember getting excited at the little snow we got when I lived down there. Just be glad you don't get more! Playing in it is fun... driving in it... another story!

One of the symptoms of global warming is an exaggerated hydrologic cycle. If it's cold enough to snow in any given microclimate, it'll still snow. Global warming might cause it to snow more than usual, however, since there is more water in the atmosphere. The predictions are that global warming will upset "normal" weather patterns; snow in areas that don't usually get it could be a symptom of a gradually warming atmosphere. Until the late 1800s it apparently snowed almost every year on the Central Coast, some years as far south as Carpinteria. Portola complained of snow and cold on his overland trek to Monterey Bay in the 1700s.

But still today, snow in southern California is not completely unusual. To my memory it snows in low-lying areas near the coast every 10 or so years. I remember snow in Calabasas and Fillmore in the late 80s. Snow levels on the mountains around Santa Barbara came to around 200 feet above sea level in the 90s, a couple of times. Fun to see while it lasts.

OMG, it's freeeeezing up here!! We're breaking records all over, and it's supposed to drop into the TEENS in some towns... it's about 28 degrees right now, which is really unheard of in the Bay Area. They said snow was possible, but it seems the precipitation is staying away from us. Darn, that would have been cool!! It snowed a bit last winter, up in the hilly parts of San Mateo & San Jose... meanwhile, my father lives in D.C. & said it was 70 degrees earlier this week. Global warming or not, something weird is going on lately.
