CAJON PASS-(VVNG.com): “If you do not like the weather now, just wait a few minutes”, is a commonly used phrase used in the east coast states, but the High Desert has seemingly indecisive weather patterns also. Several motorists are reporting snow in the Cajon Pass Monday morning.
Drivers are reminded that poor visibility and slick roads can make for dangerous road conditions unless all proceed with caution. All drivers should run headlights when visibility is low or when windshield wipers are in use per California State law.
CHP logs indicate that snow is falling in the Oak Hills area, but at this time is not sticking. Rain is expected to last through the day and into the evening until around 7:00 p.m. The beginning of rainfall is most dangerous for motorists due to tire residue, oils, and grease left behind by vehicles being broken down by the water. This breakdown creates very slippery conditions, which can lead to traffic collisions.
Snow is reported to be falling at 3500’ elevations as of 9:30 a.m. CalTrans said that chains are required for those driving through the San Bernardino Mountains.
