Rain is coming to Lake Arrowhead ~ Where is the Snow?

The forecast today in Lake Arrowhead, CA is showing 80% chance of rain… I was thinking back to last year and the snow storms we had already had at this time of year.  The weather has been fickle, we have seen sunshine galore and we are wanting some winter to sparkle up our mountain.  So with that being said, this girl is looking forward to the rainstorm that will grace our mountain today.

What is a typical Winter like in Lake Arrowhead?  Well, mostly it is a four season kind of resort, but this year, something odd is happening.  We have had a lot of sunshine and the bulbs are confused and trying to pop up.

Here is a chart on our averages
