Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow and did not see his shadow, predicting an early spring for us all.
But that sure wasn’t the case on Monday as another winter storm system battered the Bay Area, bringing a dusting of snow on higher elevations like Mt. Diablo.
Snow was also seen on other Bay Area peaks Monday, like Mt. Tam and Mt. Saint Helena.
In the morning, as moisture moved through there was snow falling. Especially near the summit which is about 4,849 feet.
They had heavy flurries up there and the roadways were slick as the snow would melt and then freeze on the roads and parking lots.
By mid-morning, state parks, which operates M.t Diablo, had closed down the summit and people were being stopped at the Juniper Campground below the summit.
Throughout the day, the rain and snow let up and as we head into the evening hours we are expecting more rain and possibly snow into Tuesday morning.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for elevations above 1000′ in the Bay Area from late this afternoon through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Weather officials say snow levels will also lower through the day and into Tuesday morning with accumulating snowfall looking more likely above 1,500-2,000 feet.
