Update: Sierra Nevada Wind Advisory

Stormy weather will continue to impact the Mother Lode as the second of two waves arrives in Northern California today and continues into early Monday.

Up to one inch of total rainfall is expected across the San Joaquin Valley and up to five inches of rain is expected over the mountains. Wind gusts of thirty to fifty mph are likely. The snow levels will remain mostly above 7,000 feet before dropping Sunday night and early Monday to around 6500 feet.

Some of the overall impacts could include slick roads, urban ponding, flooding, clogged gutters and drains from fallen leaves, downed small branches, weakened trees, power outages and blowing debris including loose Halloween decorations. There is a high potential of spin-outs and accidents.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the Sierra Nevada for today from 11 AM to 11 PM.

Wind gusts of forty to fifty mph are likely.

Another round of strong winds are possible on Sunday.

A Wind Advisory means that winds of at least forty mph are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for small cars and high profile vehicles.
