Los Angeles’ first significant storm of the season arrived Sunday night, bringing with it intense lightning, rolling thunder, hail and the increased potential for road hazards and debris flows.
Southern California mountain resorts came alive this after the storms on Sunday and Monday dropped as much as 2 feet of snow on local slopes. The new powder enticed skiers and snowboarders but added risk and delays on mountain roads, with waits of two hours or more reported Tuesday on the route to Mt. Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains.
