Skywatch Friday April Snow

Driving back from Arizona on the 31st of March these photos are of the Cajon Pass traveling back into the Inland Empire from the high desert.

The South side of the highway, heavy clouds and edge of windy storm passing by.

Still snowing on the high peaks on the North side of the pass,wind gusts of 35-40 mph at this point, steady wind of 20+mph.

Another mile down the hill and the clouds are lifting a little, still windy.

A few miles more and the wind died down while the sun from the valley beyond is starting to break through.

There is Spring ski season in Southern California this year since so much snow remains!
