The Morning After1862 viewsThe morning after the cold winter storm blew through. Snow level was down to about 2000 feet. My house is at 1680 feet.
The Lowe Fire1121 viewsThe WeatherCam caught several good images of the Lowe Fire (named for nearby Mt. Lowe). Quick work from the Angeles National Forest Fire Crews along with Los Angeles County resources kept the fire to around 12 acres with no structures lost.
In this image a Water Dropping Helicopter approaches to make a drop.
Taurid Meteor1005 viewsTaurid Meteor shower. The Taurids are linked to debris from comet 2P/Enke, and roughly every 3 years there is an outburst as Earths orbit intersects the debris cloud. They appear to eminate from the Constellation Tauris. They can be very bright.
Station Fire 31118 viewsSaturday August 29, the Temperature was 78 Degrees at 9:36PM. Humidity was only 12% and Winds were calm. The Star Of Palawoo can be seen on the right giving nervous residents a glimmer of hope.
Station Fire 2735 viewsEarly morning hours of Saturday the 29th. Temperature was 77 Degrees at 1:36am. Humidity was 15% with 3MPH Winds from the NE. Smoke was blowing back down on us. The Station Fire went on to burn uncontrolled for weeks and consumed more than 250 Square Miles.
Station Fire 1906 viewsImage captured on 8/28/09 4:36pm. The Station Fire which started along Angeles Crest Highway on 8/26 had now wroked it's way East. In this image the fire is racing up the back side of Brown Mountain. Temperature was 97 Degrees and Humidity was 10% with winds 2MPH out of the SSW.

Starry Night2006 viewsA cold Winter Storm blew through the area March 11, 2006. I had just installed the WeatherCam and was lucky to catch this glimpse of the Hills dusted with snow down to the 2000 foot level.
Star1141 viewsThis beautiful star is visible on many nights around the holidays. It sits on a hill top above my home. I'm trying to get more info about it and will post it here.
OK, I found out a lot more about the Star.
Read about it here
Snowfall2121 viewsA rare sight here in Altadena. Snow actually falling. Of couse it didn't stick long.
Sno-Caps823 viewsRemember the Nestle Candy you used to get at the Movies? Well, that's what came to mind when thinking of a name for this image.

A very cold Low Pressure System moved down the coast from Alaska and combined with some moisture from the South to give us this beautiful snowfall down to about 3000'. This image was taken at 3:06 a.m. and the temperature dropped down to 33.1 Degrees just before sunrise.
She'll Be Comin' 'round The Mountain When She Comes205 viewsThis was pointed out by Normand, one of the many fans of the Altadena WeatherCam. A nice shot of a helicopter circling over the San Gabriel's the other night. It was a Sunday evening so they were probably looking for a lost/overdue hiker. The Green and Red Navigation Lights cause the change in colors in the streak of light.
Rainbow888 viewsAltadena Weathercam captured a Rainbow this afternoon as a cold winter storm blew through the area. Only 0.91 inches of rain but temperatures are supposed to go real low tonight and snow level could drop to 1500 feet.
