Snow Coming…and It’s Coming Down Low …And, Then, It’s Predicted to Get REALLY Cold
According to the National Weather Service (What? You haven’t liked them on Facebook yet? Go do it. They keep Northern California informed!), it’s going to be a bit nippy this weekend and travel could get a bit nasty. They say,
Low elevation snowfall will impact travel Sunday through Monday. One to three inches of snow will likely accumulate on or nearby routes 199, 299 and 36 Sunday through Monday. Lighter amounts of snow may fall as low as 1000 feet on or nearby highway 101. If you are planning travel this weekend, be ready for occasional snow showers and slick roads. Check road conditions and be ready for wintry driving conditions. A dry and frigid air mass will settle over Northwest California next week.
Places like Garberville and Bridgeville could see snow on Monday…particularly by Monday night.
…Much colder temperatures are expected next week as arctic air sinks south into the area. Sub-freezing low temperatures are expected area-wide by the middle of next week with lows dropping into the teens across parts of the interior. Residents should prepare to protect exposed pipes and ensure that pets are kept indoors.
