Snow falls on San Francisco after a 35-year wait

43498.jpegAs a Pacific storm coincided with a blast of cold Canadian air over their fair city, residents here saw snow late Friday, a long-absent visitor for a city accustomed to fog, sweater-weather and other nearly bone-chilling accoutrements.

Predictions had called for the possibility of the first significant snowfall in San Francisco since February 1976, when all of an inch fell, according to the National Weather Service. And just before midnight, several high-lying city neighborhoods, including Twin Peaks, at some 900 feet, reported light snowfall, New York Times reports.

Although the snow in San Francisco was only moderate, Mayor Ed Lee urged citizens to take precautionary measures, and to watch out for icy road conditions. But for snow to fall and accumulate in San Francisco, temperatures must drop to 36 degrees, which means that whatever falls in the next hours will disappear as soon as it hits the ground.

"We won't wake up and run out and go build snowmen," Bob Benjamin, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Monterey, Calif., said Friday afternoon. But snow did fall on San Francisco, and for those who want to witness this rare weather event, Argophilia Travel News informs.
