actually... there have been several times i've checked the weather and it states rain/snow showers for saturday morning.... although it keeps changing (at one point it said 20-30 nph winds....)

and i'm not even going to argue the whole cold is relative to the temps you are used to riding in.....

it sure it purdy to look out my window and see the snow blowing around, though!

CAli I was thinking of you this morning while watching he news and seeing all the snow flying around Hesperia and the IE. If you can take photos I would love to see them. I am waiting for the clouds ot clear to get a good view of the San Gabriel mountains all covered with snow.

Have fun at Stagecoach - starting temps shouldn't be lower than 30 right???

I had to shovel the crap out of two long driveways damn near every day from November through April when I was a kid. When I went to college, my family conveniently got a snowblower to make it easier on my brother and sister.

I do NOT miss snow. I would be happy to never see it again.

I'm looking forward to the ride tomorrow (up little Tujunga and over to Angeles Forest). Based on the weather forecast, it will be the coldest temperatures I have been in since I left Wisconsin 18 years ago. Out by Palmdale, it's forecast to get down to 14 degrees tonight and only up to 29 degrees by the time I get there on my bike.

Fun times. I am going to have soooo many layers on...

Ok, I'm coming to San Diego next month for WARM, what the heck is going on. It was 46 today, but rained. I rode Weds at 23 degrees, Thurs at 32 degrees, now in the mid forties, supposed to have freezing rain/snow in a day or two. Life in Indiana!

Do I need to bring my cold weather gear to SoCal? Please say NO!

John

On average February is the sunniest month in San Diego so you should see plenty of sun. If you're going to be near the coast you won't see daytime temps lower than the upper 50s (it's usually somwhere in the 60s) and we usually see overnight lows in the 40s. I would recommend bringing knee warmers, arm warmers, and a wind vest.

We didn't get any snow here overnight and I haven't checked the news to see what the mountains got, but there was a strong cold wind this morning. Oddly enough we had similar weather last friday. It's supposed to get close to the freezing mark tonight.

P.S. 52 degrees and falling this morning - nuts...
