There's lots of visible snow this afternoon on the mountain slopes lining the Los Angeles basin, but the predictions of snow below 1,000 feet proved to be overly enthusiastic. (Wait, that never happens with L.A. media or blogs, does it?) Here's the view to the northeast from the Mount Wilson towercam at 4 p.m., with about a foot of new snow, but with a snow line somewhere in the multiple thousands. The lens is at 5,845 feet above sea level. Mt. Wilson's 100-inch telescope dome is on the left side of the picture.
* And then later...: There was some snow dusting down low. Here's pics from La Crescenta and Burbank. Plus a KTLA report on Burbank's Castaway restaurant and parking lot being covered in a thin layer of snow.
