  • Katia Guerrero, 17 from Monrovia, plays in the snow at Angeles Crest Highway near Angeles Forest Highway in the Angeles National Forest above La Canada Flintridge on Wednesday, February 20, 2013. Guerrero's older sister brought her up to the snow because today is her birthday. A fast-moving storm dumped snow at higher elevations overnight.

A cold front originating in the Gulf of Alaska delivered periodic rain showers to La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday and left the San Gabriel Mountains dusted with snow.

The forecast for the storm led to the closure of Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon to Angeles Crest Highway, and of a portion of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road.

Some La Cañada areas interfacing with the Station fire debris flow area prepared for the storm with sandbags. But no significant rainfall totals were recorded, with Descanso Gardens reporting 0.07 inches as of Tuesday afternoon.

The rains arrived just as La Cañada residents were poised to begin an eight-day ban on outdoor irrigation while a water pipeline that serves the region is upgraded by the Metropolitan Water District.
