Thursday's weather included some unusual sights around Southern California with reports of snow at some of the lowest elevations in years. In many cases, those reports actually turned out to be hail or a snow-like form of precipitation known as graupel, but it all made for some rare winter scenes.
It's extremely rare for snow to fall at such low elevations, but not unheard of. The last time it happened was 30 years ago, when a half-inch of snow was reported in the San Fernando Valley. No snow was reported in downtown LA Thursday, but we did receive a trace there in January 1962 and measurable amounts twice since 1877.
