Snow in Santa Clarita? As the snow level dips to 2,000 ft., Caltrans has closed the 14 Freeway for 26 miles between Soledad Canyon in Santa Clarita to Palmdale Blvd in Palmdale for an unknown duration as they clear snow. This arctic storm has brought a good amount of snow across the region: 7 inches have fallen at Mount Wilson, 6 inches in Frazier Park, up to 8 inches in Wrightwood with an estimated 12 inches expected in some areas as the day continues, according to the National Weather Service. UPDATE, 2:50 P.M.: 14 remains closed, 5 and 138 also closed.
