Eight to twenty inches of snow fell at elevations above 6000 feet in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains (California). Some lighter snow fell down to about 3000 feet. Visibility was near zero in the passes due to blowing snow and fog. Winds ranging from 30-60mph created blizzard conditions. In addition, heavy rain at the lower elevations along the foothills caused flooding and mud slides along many roads leading into the valleys.
