Let there be snow

Special sight as white appears around Tri-Valley this week

View of snowfall on peaks from Pleasanton on Tuesday morning.

Weather conditions were just right overnight to bring white to hills and peaks around the Tri-Valley.

Snow could be seen on hillsides and ranges north, south and east of Pleasanton on Tuesday, a sight uncommon for the East Bay where snow seldom arrives. That inspired Pleasanton Weekly contributor Mike Sedlak to capture these overhead photographs of snow-dusted peaks, as viewed from Pleasanton.

There were reports of active snowfall in Livermore overnight Monday, Tri-Valley commuters noted dustings along the Altamont Pass, and all sorts of residents, public officials and business owners were busy sharing snow photos and videos come Tuesday morning -- including this one from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office showing K-9 officer Snake enjoying the snow on Calaveras Road above Sunol.

Though most of the Bay Area snow is expected to dissipate by week's end, meteorologists predict significant snowfall in higher elevations through the weekend. They advise Bay Area residents traveling to Lake Tahoe or other Sierra Nevada destinations to check the forecasts and stay safe when taking their trips.
