Weather System Moves In Tonight
Another dose of rain and snow is expected to move across Northern California by tonight. The National Weather Service in Sacramento says a fast-moving storm system from the
Pacific will produce rain and snow, but NOT the extremely-heavy precipitation of recent storms.
Up to one-half of inch of rain is expected in the Redding area, with lesser amounts down to about one-tenth of an inch or less near Sacramento.
Four to eight inches of new show is possible tonight and tomorrow over the higher terrain of the southern Cascades and Sierra Nevada. Snow levels are expected to lower to three-thousand
feet over the mountains of extreme Northern California tonight, and to five-thousand-feet in the Sierra.
Rain and snow will taper off to scattered showers tomorrow, accompanied by cold northerly winds gusting to 30 miles or more in the Sacramento Valley.
In the Lake Tahoe area, three to six inches of snow is expected tonight above seven-thousand feet, accompanied by brisk winds and temperatures ralling into the 20s.
In northeastern California three-to-six inches of snow is expected tonight above 55-hundred feet. Strong southwest winds to 35 miles per hour are expected to shift to northerly during the night as temperatures drop into the 20s.
