Snow blankets Bay Area mountain peaks

A winter wonderland in March

While rain and hail pelted much the city over the weekend, a gentle dusting of snow graced the tops of some of our mountain peaks.

“Highway 9 and Skyline Boulevard near Saratoga, where the elevation is about 2,000 feet, received a heavy dusting Monday,” reports SFGate. “National Weather Service forecasters say snow also hit Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County, Mount Hamilton just east of San Jose and Mount Tamalpais in Marin County.”

Other areas also saw some snow, too. According to NBC Bay Area, “Resting slightly lower than the Bay Area's already snow-capped peaks, Highway 9 and Skyline Boulevard near Saratoga, where the elevation is about 2,000 feet, received a heavy dusting Monday morning.”

While the rain and snow will cease in the Bay Area, the Sierras and other eastern regions should expect heaps of snow.

The Bay Area saw record (and much-needed) amounts of water drench the area this winter season. So much so that many cities suffered from widespread flooding.

As we dry out, check out the snow that fell overnight.
