The local mountains might see a White Christmas

Those of you dreaming of a White Christmas may just get your wish as the forecast is calling for snow in the local mountains on Christmas Eve.

Over at, the forecast for Big Bear Lake is calling for light snow in the morning hours – with a better chance of snow showers coming in the afternoon.


The forecast says 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected, with the storm moving out on Christmas Day – perfect for your snowboarding, skiing, or making snowmen plans.

If your plans have you staying in the Coachella Valley, the forecast calls for a decent chance of rain Christmas Eve morning, clearing out by the afternoon.  Highs for both Christmas Eve and Christmas will be in the upper 50s.

Update: KESQ’s Jerry Steffen is calling for up to 10 inches of snow in the mountains.
