Snowflakes are sticking on Hwy 299 at Berry Summit and on Hwy 199 near the Oregon border.

The National Weather Service reminded everyone this morning that a Winter Weather Advisory…

…is in effect through 10:00 PM Monday January 2nd, 2017 as periods of snow showers are forecast for Northwest California. Snow levels will dramatically drop to roughly 1000 feet with 4 to 7 inches of snow forecast from Sunday into Sunday night.

Coastal areas, even as low as sea level, may see a few snow flakes but little to no accumulation is expected in these areas. Highways at pass level are expected to see chain requirements due to dangerous driving conditions from this inclement weather.
