First Alert Weather Alert: Winter storm brings wind, rain, and snow

Winter Storm Warning is in effect for local mountains through Wednesday night as heavy snow continues to fall. As of this morning, Idyllwild reported 10" of snow, and Big Bear City had 24-30".

Snow, rain, graupel, and hail were all reported across parts of the desert today. See photos here.

The main push of wet weather across the desert was timed for early Wednesday morning and has gradually cleared out through the afternoon. The map below shows some of the rainfall recorded around the desert, with a notable difference between the west and east ends.

High Wind Warning remains in effect for the Coachella Valley until 10:00 p.m. These strong west winds can make travel difficult and even damage trees.

Skies will clear tonight with plenty of sunshine for the final days of the week. Temperatures will remain cool for the season through the start of March.
