Despite unseasonably cold temperatures and windy conditions, forecasters last week were a little surprised to see a storm system moving across Northern California so late in May, producing thunderstorms, rain and hail in most of the coastal regions and several inches of snow in the mountains. But as warmer conditions develop, the unexpected storm has given Californians the opportunity to celebrate this holiday weekend on sand or snow — or both. "Snowboard on Saturday, surf on Sunday and barbecue on Monday," said Bill Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Another intense storm produced major headaches for motorists on highways in the Lake Tahoe area, but the snow was good news for ski resorts. John Qualls, Caltrans regional manager, said westbound motorists on Interstate 80 faced four-hour delays in getting over Donner Summit because of the heavy snow. Chains or snow tires were mandatory on most highways in the Tahoe area, including I-80, I-50 over Echo Summit and California 88 over Carson Pass.

Another cold front rolled into Northern California, soaking the region Saturday with a steady rain and bringing snow to local peaks for the second straight day. The system, part of a storm sequence that began Wednesday, has helped bring seasonal rainfall totals closer to normal after an unusually dry January.

Seven years ago, at the dawn of California's drought, Tom Macango left Hawaii and bought a spectacular log house in the wooded Sierras. Its perch atop a steep, 135-foot-long driveway seemed ideal at the time--secluded, with enough elevation for a view. Macango is now thigh-deep in snow, weathering Truckee's fiercest winter in a decade. He still loves his house but he has grown considerably less fond of the driveway.

A slow-moving storm was expected to bring heavy showers through today that could linger through Tuesday morning, dropping from three quarters of an inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain in Ventura County. The storm, which meteorologists had predicted would arrive in the county on Saturday, left much-needed rain and snow in Northern California before it drifted south over Santa Barbara and Ventura counties late Sunday.

The tail of a powerful storm that rolled down from the Pacific Northwest earlier last week dropped more than half an inch of rain in Ventura County late Friday and early Saturday, meteorologists said. Rainfall totals ranged from 0.63 inch recorded in Ojai to 0.28 inch in Moorpark and 0.28 inch in Thousand Oaks. The Ventura County Government Center in Ventura picked up 0.35 inch.

In a move that could mean more restrictions on water exports to Southern California, federal environmental officials on Wednesday rejected key portions of a state plan for protecting endangered fish and wildlife in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the state plan fell short of assuring that sufficient water is retained in the delta so that "habitat conditions . . . will be protected."

The tail of an eastbound storm turned out to be wetter than the forecasters had expected early Thursday, dampening Southern California with a parting shot of rain and setting the stage for more showers over the weekend. A new storm was gathering strength as it crawled down out of the Gulf of Alaska and was expected to turn inland over the north-central section of the state Sunday morning. It should be close enough by Saturday afternoon to give the Southland a 30% chance of rain.

In the first public debate on Ventura's future water source, each side accused the other Thursday of spreading misinformation about the State Water Project and desalination. Residents will cast advisory votes in November on the city's long-term water source before the City Council makes the final choice between building a desalination plant or importing state water.
