Arctic storm photos: snow, hail, and a swollen creek

Posted February 27, 2011, 11:20 PM.



Below are some pictures from this past weekend's cold storm, the coldest since Valentine's Day in 2008.

The storm featured between one and two and a quarter inches of rain in the inland valleys, rounds of hail, lots of mountain snow, and a few round of hail.

Rain totals from the storm, combined with those from last weekend, salvaged what was going to be an otherwise dry February.

Some of the pictures depict snow in the Anza Valley, at the Lake Riverside area and at Anza itself. The Anza Valley is just above 4,000 feet, and it isn't unusual for snow to fall there, but it is unusual for it to stick around for more than a day. The pictures are from Sunday morning.

Snow also fell in Warner Springs, in San Diego County, at an elevation of 3,100 feet, and in Beaumont, down to the 2,000 foot level, and briefly in Perris, at 1,300 feet.
