Snow in Los Angeles

This article has been updated in 2007 and describes snow in L.A. both in 2006 as well as in 2007. Let's start with March 2006.

A commenter at was afraid that I could notice a posting over at that blog that Los Angeles is experiencing Arctic weather plus snow. The information about the weather condition could even leak beyond Los Angeles. ;-) It is not the wet snow that you can occassionally see in Southern California, but a very dry, solid Arctic snow that is very rare. See a story in the L.A. Times. A Mexican illegal immigrant who got lost in snow died. In Colorado they don't know where to put all the snow.

January 2007

Los Angeles Airport hasn't seen snow since 1962. In 2007, the Terminator will declare state of emergency. Snow will fall in Western Los Angeles and in Malibu on 1/17. Interstate 5 Grapevine will be closed. See

The picture above is from January 17th, 2007, much like the picture below. If you click the picture below, you will get to a web page with many similar snowy photographs of L.A. from January 17th, 2007.

Thanks for the ref! Yeah, those 1/17 pictures really blew my mind. Quite an inconvenient truth, indeed.
