Snow coats Mt. Hamilton, dusts other Bay Area peaks

Snow fell on Mt. Hamilton and likely on other higher elevations of the Bay Area overnight and more could be on the way, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said Monday morning.

The weather service does not have cameras tracking snowfall but a live feed available on alertwildfire.org shows a considerable amount of snow on Mt. Hamilton, located in Santa Clara County and home of the Lick Observatory.

Snow was still falling mid-morning Monday. By the end of the day Wednesday, as much as a foot could be atop that peak and others.

Meteorologist Roger Gass said:

It’s going to be cold out there.”

Elevations above 4,000 feet will be cold enough that by Wednesday the total accumulation of snowfall could be significant, Gass said.

Sunday night into Monday, snow may have fallen on peaks as low as 3,500 feet, weather officials said. PG&E webcams also showed snowfall on Seigler Mountain and Cow Mountain in Lake County.

Some peaks above the Big Sur coast are also likely to have seen snow. Gass said:

Those typically turn into a winter wonderland.”

Gass said the unsettled weather is expected to continue through Wednesday.
