Storm Misses High Desert, Brings Snow to Mountains

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley )– A low pressure system moved in off the coast of Southern California today, but was not able to make it over the mountains to bring rain to the High Desert.

“Most showers weakened once they reached the mountains,”  said Noel Isla, meterologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “There were reports of a couple of inches of snow in Big Bear, but no snow was reported in Wrightwood.”

The storm system will have moved mostly out of the area today, with high clouds and temperatures in the 60s forecasted. “It will be sunny and cool for the rest of the week, with light wind and highs in the 60s,” said Isla.

Overnight lows will still be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
