Storm Brings Lightning, Snow to Coast

Snow and hail come to Santa Monica Bay

By Sam Catanzaro

A storm that brought snow to some local beaches Friday led to the closure of Santa Monica Bay beaches due to the potential for lightning strikes.

On Friday morning, the Los Angeles County Lifeguards announced that Los County Beaches from Zuma to Marina Del Rey were closed due to the potential for beach lightning. Lifeguards say they are working with the National Weather Service Los Angeles to monitor the current weather and determine a time to safely reopen the beaches.

According to the NWS, at 9: 30 a.m, a thunderstorm was detected around 17 miles west of El Segundo in the Santa Monica Bay. By 3:30 p.m. the beaches had reopened.

The same winter storm that brought the lighting also brought snow to some Los Angeles County Beaches. On Friday around noon, County Lifeguards shared a photo on social media showing snow at El Porto in Manhatten Beach.

“Well you don’t see that everyday! A strong winter storm continues to impact Los Angeles through this afternoon bringing snow/hail to El Porto in Manhattan Beach,” reads the post.
