The wet weather that blew through the Inland area over the weekend brought lots of rain and some flooding, but also dropped loads of snow in the mountains.

On Monday morning, Jan. 16, Mt. Baldy Resort in the San Gabriel Mountains reported in a tweet that it had received 10 inches of new snow in the past 12 hours. The report said, “coverage on the mountain is good, conditions will make grooming difficult. Snowboards and wide skies are the call today for folks braving the storm.”

Later that same day the resort reported that the amount of snow was proving difficult and it closed down operations for a time: “Operations currently on WEATHER HOLD. It’s a rough day on the mountain with the snow level fluctuating above the Notch. VERY WET.”

By Tuesday morning the skies were clear and the rain was gone and the resort tweeted, “We will be open for Skiing, Riding & Snow Play … Conditions are going to be good today.”

The clear skies Tuesday also provided an open invitation for those down below to venture up to the higher elevations to play in the freshly fallen snow.

The National Weather Service is calling for this week to be mostly sunny and clear through the weekend except for a slight chance of rain Thursday.
