A Late Season Storm System Is Headed Our Way

A Late Season Storm System Is Headed Our Way 

Enjoy the brief sunshine today another storm system is headed our way. After a relatively quiet period both today and early Thursday, a late season storm system will bring another round of hazardous mountain travel late Thursday through Saturday. During this time, as much as two feet of new snow is forecast at the higher elevations. The heaviest snowfall rates of over one inch per hour could occur. Snow levels will generally range from 5,500 to 6,500 feet. Winds during this time are expected to be quiet gusty as well , with gusts ranging from forty to fifty MPH. The combination of strong wind and heavy snow will generate especially hazardous travel conditions over the open passes. If traveling into the Sierra Nevada late Thursday through Saturday, be sure to prepare for dangerous winter like conditions. Carry tire chains and check the latest road and weather reports on mymotherlode.com before departure.
