Light Snow Causes 'Excitement' in Los Angeles Area

Light snow and hail showers caused surprise and excitement among residents of Los Angeles County on Wednesday, March 1, though the National Weather Service warned that the same weather system was also bringing dangerous winds to the region.

“The snow and small hail are getting all the excitement, but significant and damaging winds are either occurring now or will develop this evening,” NWS Los Angeles wrote on Twitter. “Watch for downed trees and power lines” and “prepare for power outages,” they said.
