PHOTOS OF SNOW: MOUNT LAGUNA WEDNESDAY 12/31/2014

Here's an image from Laguna today courtesy of UCSD webcam system. Pretty cool! There is one more batch of precipitation moving through the area, then we will be dry by the late afternoon. Get ready for the cold tonight! I'll post rain and snow totals in a few hours.


And later in the day

  1. Thanks. Great picture and so good to see. Looks like another world!
    Very interested in the precipitation totals as well. How much impact do you think this snow will have on totals?

  2. Great question! Unfortunately, this snow "only" amounts to about 0.2 to 0.6" of rainfall when melted down. Regardless, given our current drought conditions, we'll take whatever comes our way! I'll get those rain/snow totals out shortly.

  3. Yes right, happy to get whatever comes our way! I would imagine the slower snow melt will help improve the water content of the soil a little better than precipitation would as well?

    Snow and freezing temperatures can also benefit evergreen species as well as kill and reduce harmful insect numbers such as bark beetles who are much more likely to infect stressed trees during drought conditions. Would view this snow event as an additional positive then.

    Thanks for the great weather details on your blog!

    1. The snow definitely helps with a slower release into the watershed. I drove up into the mountains yesterday. It was beautiful! I certainly hope we get a few more storms like this one in the future. Unfortunately the pattern doesn't support it for at least another week...maybe two.

      I'm glad you like the blog! I hope to have an update this weekend.
