MALIBU—Snow showers fell from the Los Angeles sky on Thursday, February 21 covering Malibu, West Hollywood, Thousand Oaks, Northbridge, Pasadena and San Bernardino. According to the Los Angeles Public Library archives, the last time it snowed in Los Angeles was January 1962.
According to forecasters, the light snow is the result of a snow storm from Alberta, Canada. Snow drizzled over the Los Angeles region after the snow lever hit the 1,000-foot mark. In Orange County, snow elevation dropped to 800 feet.
California Highway Patrol officials tweeted about the closure of the 5 Freeway due to the thick layer of snow. The I-15 at the California-Nevada state line was also shut down because of dangerous driving conditions.
Many took to social media with pictures showing the snowy situation with hashtags like #SNOWCAL, #snowmageddon2019 and #LAsnow.
