Even in this past storm that hit about a week ago I think, They said it was in the 30s and there wasn't even flurries? I only say that because it was the same tempature where I live and it snowed for about 20 minutes.
Yeah, even though the I-5 was closed a whopping 7 exits north of me (and 4 north of Magic Mountain Parkway), at Parker Rd., we didn't get a single hint of snow. I drove up to Parker Rd on the night of the closure and all I found was big rigs lining both sides of the I-5 for about 6 miles up to the closure. No hint of snow. I drove up the I-5 last Tuesday (12/23) to find snow, and I had to go clear to Gorman/Frazier Park to really find it.
It does get into the 30s and even 20s here overnight this time of year, but Valencia is at a way low elevation for snow. Gets into the 50s-60s during the days. During the storm, it got up into the upper 40s during the daylight hours. When there's cloud cover, at this elevation the heat gets trapped overnight so it's still too warm to snow.
Snow at Magic Mountain is extremely unlikely, but, as demonstrated by the recent freeway closure, sometimes you don't have to go very far north up the I-5 to find snow.
