Snow in the Bay Area? You Betcha

Let It Snow

Snow, thunder and hail are all the forecast.

The calendar is about to turn to April, but you will notice snow on Bay Area peaks this Wednesday morning.

A rare spring dusting happened overnight.

It was coming down pretty hard on Mt. Hamilton in the 6 a.m. hour during reporter Bob Redell's live report.

The poor guy was up on the hill without gloves and he is fighting a cold so his voice was quite scratchy as he showed television viewers the white stuff falling and sticking near the 3,500 foot level.

Most of the Bay Area will only be able to see the snow on the far away peaks.  The roads that normally close are closed and that is keeping members of the public from being able to truly experience the spring storm.

The weather will make itself known for the rest of us though.  The streets were wet during the morning commute and more rain, which could include thunder and hail is forecast for the afternoon and evening hours.
   
The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for  Bay Area beaches through 9 p.m. Wednesday.  Waves could get as high as 18 feet.

And there is plenty of snow in the Sierra foothills. It's a winter wonderland up there for a second day.  Spring skiers are going to have to shed the swimsuits and put on the parkas as they hit the slopes for a late season powder day.
