Light snow expected on some Bay Area mountains

SAN FRANCISCO — Thunderstorms, lightning, snow, massive waves and generally odd weather were all being reported across California as yet another storm moved through the region during the last weekend of the year.

In Northern California, a combination of cold temperatures and the moisture being carried by the latest storm dropped snow Saturday on some mountains in the San Francisco Bay area, the National Weather Service reported.

Outside of San Jose, cameras at the Lick Observatory, on the summit of 4,200-foot high Mount Hamilton, showed snow falling Saturday afternoon.

Snow was also reported on other area mountains, including across the Santa Cruz mountains and on Mt. Diablo, said National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Anderson.

"Pretty much everywhere above 2,500 has seen a dusting today," Anderson said Saturday.
