Coming soon to The Times' weather page: Idyllwild

July 19, 2011 |  2:55 pm


Results of an informal reader poll are in, and Idyllwild is the city that will be added to the California cities list on The Times' weather page.

The San Jacinto mountains town received about 38% of the vote, besting second-place Santa Cruz, with 29%. Corona, Lake Elsinore and Julian were the other cities in contention.

Reader Carol Fahy emailed after casting her vote, saying the addition of Idyllwild would be helpful for locals and visitors alike. "C'mon up sometime for a visit," she added. "You will really like it if you like the outdoors and  peace and quiet in nature."

AccuWeather says the change will take effect as soon as Wednesday's paper.
