Snow For Thanksgiving?

Snow For Thanksgiving?

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the Sierra Nevada and the Mother Lode above 2,000 feet from 10 AM Tuesday through 4 AM Friday.  Heavy snowfall is likely by Tuesday evening and continues through the overnight hours and into Wednesday.  Total snow accumulations above the 2,000 foot elevation will range from four inches to four feet.  The higher you go, the more the snow.  Heavy snow is expected at times. The snow showers will continue in the Sierra through Thanksgiving Day.  Travel delays and road closures will be more than likely. Slick, snow-covered roads and potentially dangerous and treacherous driving conditions are to be expected.  Snow combined with very strong winds will significantly reduce visibility at times.  Winds will gust as high as forty mph in the Mother Lode. Winds could gust as high as sixty-five mph in the Sierra Nevada.  A Winter Storm Warning for snow means there will be snow covered roads and limited visibilities.  Travel is highly discouraged in the high sierras Tuesday night through the Thanksgiving holiday.   If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.                                    Written by Jerry Guidi
