Weather to stay cool this weekend

A quick moving storm blew the Claremont region Monday giving many people a big surprise. Snow! Although it was only a dusting, the snow level did drop to 6000 feet during the day, making the Mt.

More sun kicks in Sunday as a warm-up comes next week. Lows will remain cool around 50. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
