Winter Wonderland! Snow Makes Rare Return to the Bay Area

After making its spectacular return to the Bay Area on Monday, snow continued to pile up across parts of the region during the early hours of Tuesday.

Among the spots that have received a light dusting of snow or more since Monday include some of the Bay Area’s highest peaks — Mt. Diablo, Mt. Tamalpais and Mt. Hamilton — along with the Santa Cruz Mountains and the hills above Livermore, Palo Alto and Calistoga, among others.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory through 7 a.m. Tuesday for spots above 1,000 feet.

Higher elevations in the North Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains and East Bay hills could see anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow, according to the weather service. Locations above 2,000 feet could collect as much as 4 to 8 inches.
