Snow Business

February 16, 2001

Two cold fronts made their way through the Glendale area this week,

leaving a white blanket of snow over many areas in the upper elevations

outside of Glendale. Meteorologist Bruce Rockwell of the National Weather

Service said that as much as 6 feet of snow was recorded at elevations of

7,000 feet or higher. Approximately 7 or more inches of snow was reported

at 4,000 feet, and slight traces of snow fell just above 3,000 feet in

the San Gabriel Mountains. Below 3,000 feet, the low-pressure systems


dropped 3 to 4 inches of rain between Sunday and Wednesday of this week,

Rockwell said. Another cold front is expected to hit Glendale late

Saturday, with a 50% chance of rain in lower elevations and snow above

4,000 feet sometime Sunday, according to Thursday's projections by the

National Weather Service. California Highway Patrol Public Affairs

Officer Wendy Moore said it was too soon to say if chains would be

mandatory for travel in upper elevations this weekend. For road condition
