Running Springs Weather & Climate

The mountains east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino National Forest have weather conditions that vary widely depending on the elevation. The range of elevation goes from 1500 feet at the valley floor to over 11,000 feet at Mt. San Gorgonio. Generally, it is very dry and sunny in the summertime and wildfire is always a threat. In July, the forest usually enters the "very high" fire restriction level when no open campfires are allowed and smoking is only within enclosed vehicles. The rainy season begins in October, with January through March being the wettest months. Snow falls in the higher elevations. Weather can change rapidly in the mountains, so visitors are advised to come prepared for a variety of conditions.
