Weekend Snow, Surf and Weather Report

The L.A. Department of Public Health recommends that people avoid the water 72 hours after a rain storm.

Mountain snow report:

Due to the warmer weather, it has been raining on Big Bear Mountain in the last couple of days. The coverage is "excellent" on the open runs and the snow depth is 36-42 inches, according to the resort snow report. High temperatures are expected to be in the 40s on Saturday and Sunday.

Mammoth Mountain received 5 inches of new snow on Thursday and 2 inches on Friday. The snow depth on the slopes is about 120 inches and all 150 runs are open. The high is expected to be about in the high 20s, low 30s on both Saturday and Sunday.


Los Angeles weather report:

Saturday will see a 40 percent chance of showers, mainly before 10 a.m. and then mostly cloudy weather with a high of 64 degrees in Los Angeles. After 10 p.m. Saturday, showers are likely to resume and continue until about 10 a.m. Sunday. After 10 a.m., partly cloudy skies are expected, with a high of 59 degress, according to the National Weather Service.


Los Angeles County surf report:

A weak NW swell is hitting the area Saturday, and sets are expected to be 1-2 feet with occasional 3-foot sets. Sunday, a small south swell will bring 1-3 foot faces. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recommends that people avoid the water 72-hours after a rainfall due to elevated fecal bacteria concentrations.

Beach grades are based on an A+ to F scale. Grades indicate the likelihood of swimmers becoming ill. Water samples are analyzed for bacteria – enterococcus, total and fecal coliforms. The report does not measure the amount of trash or toxins found at local beaches.

Dark Blue Marker = A+

Light Blue Marker = A

Green Marker = B

Yellow Marker = C

Pink = D

Red Marker = F

Purple Marker = No sample taken

*Note: Grades for Long Beach beaches were last taken Jan. 8 and do not reflect the recent rain.

Solstice Beach at Dan Blocker County Beach gets a failing grade. Why? Just did a quick search of this beach. Almost zero kelp wracks or roosting birds on the beach and no residents with septics up the canyon. But there is a gas station with busy restroom facilities directly across the street and eight homes perched on the coastal bluff with septic systems within 300 yrds of the test site. It looks obvious, but feel free to speculate on the failing grade.
