    It might hail if you're lucky, but it will never snow.

    It's actually rained a lot more than normal -- and it actually has snowed in Berkeley before, but it was a long freaking time ago.

    basically, no. once every decade or two it snows, but not enough to stick on the ground.

    I hear it snowed a few years ago remarkably close to campus, just off the base of the eastern foothills. Alas, it's not something you can expect to happen. Meh, sunshine and mild temps are good enough for me.

    on average, it does snow in the bay area once every 40 years, or so. But the snow is really more like slush and only hands for a couple of hours.

    It snowed there on Cal Day, so yes, it does snow. You may want to watch out for that.

    Kratos, whaaaaaa?

    I live in the Bay Area, specifically 30 minutes away from Cal if you take BART. And no...

    It doesn't snow. If anything...it's RAIN! Ayyy!

    misz87, I am surprised that you haven't seen snow. On a clear January morning take a drive up 5 and you should be able to see the snow capped Mt. Baldy right here in SoCal. And there are many nice places you can go and play in snow - both in the SoCal & the NoCal areas - just an hour or two away from Cal or UCLA.
