Special to The Daily Triplicate/Dawn Messer
A rare snow fall dusted Crescent City shortly after sunrise today, making for a number of beautiful scenes, including this one caught by city resident Dawn Messer at Pebble Beach.
A dusting of snow greeted Crescent City residents shortly after dawn today. Most of the snow evaporated within an hour as temperatures rose about freezing. Less than an inch accumulated, the National Weather Service in Eureka reported.
With the snowfall so light, no weather-related accidents were reported in the area. Snow had fallen at elevations above 500 feet Wednesday, including at Vista Point south of the city. Cold temperatures through the night, however, caused what normally would be winter rain to freeze and fall as snow at elevations below 500 feet along the shoreline.
The dusting marked the first snowfall in Crescent City since March. The weather service predicts a "slight chance" of snow again in Crescent City this evening. Lows are expected to be in the 20s with a possibility of rain. The weather service has issued a frost advisory for the shoreline. While temperatures will remain cool and fall below freezing through the weekend, snow is unlikely. Clear skies with possible fog patches are forecast through Sunday.
