This week's snowfall covered some of the ash from the Station Fire that has given the San Gabriel Mountains a sickly appearance. Snow is also better than rain when it comes to runoff and the threat of mudslides and flooding. Unfortunately, the storms headed in Friday and over the weekend aren't expected to be as cold as the last front, with the snow level above 6,000 feet. "It's all a concern when it turns to water," said Angeles National Forest spokesman Stanton Florea at Watershed News.
