Mount Hamilton in San Jose – the tallest peak in the Bay Area - got a dusting of snow and flurries fell on Mines Road just above Livermore Valley early Tuesday morning.

And let’s not forget the hail in Walnut Creek and the frost in Hayward.

It’s been hot and dry most of the month, but at least February is ending with a bit of precipitation.

That’s because of a pair of storms from the Gulf of Alaska that is dropping snow at lower elevations.

A visitor from Virginia was surprised by his first California winter.

“It’s not actually as beautiful and warm as people say it is,” Will Patterson said. “It’s beautiful, sunny, yes. But it's not that warm.”

Tuesday’s temps should rise to the low 60s and be sunny and breezy.
