weather in san fran : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Is it true that it never lightings in San Francisco? If this isn't true when was the last time it has?

Though Thunderstorms seem to be quite rare, we had quite a few spectacular lightnings west of Ocean Beach just last Wednesday...

Snow in San Francisco? Yes, indeed!

-- Wolfgang Schubert (, January 23, 2001.


I had the exciting experience of being in the Tenderloin last week when there was lightning, thunder, and even hail! This must be the same storm Wolfgang mentioned, though I remember this to be last Thursday -- I was Location Scouting for a new TV pilot.

Also, in December 1998, I was working on The Bachelor when it actually SNOWED in the Financial District! The snow melted quickly upon hitting the ground, but there was quite a layering of it up on Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Diablo, and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Here's an article about it from the San Francisco Chronicle.
