Snow at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
Snow at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway on May 15, 2015.

The unusual winter-in-May storm that hit Southern California has dusted San Diego County’s mountain tops with snow, but not enough for snowballs or snowmen. To really have some fun, head to the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, just west of town and 8,516 feet in elevation. As I write this on Friday afternoon, its webcam looks like there’s a good dusting of snow.

This will be very green this weekend if you want to head to Sunrise Highway and Mt. Laguna or Julian in eastern San Diego County. North county residents can go up to Palomar Mountain, where the view will be great (and the Observatory should be open).
