Expect periods of rain and high wind beginning midmorning. By nightfall, the rain is expected to be steady and heavy at times. The wind is predicted to last until midnight.

With that kind of weather, expect the roads to be a bit ugly. Yesterday, we had rock and mudslides. Be prepared for more of the same.

Below is what we know at this point. As more information comes in, we’ll update in blue.

Major Highways:

(Most information below from Caltrans’ Quick Map. If you are heading to Oregon, check their similar site.)

  • HWY 1: Closed in both direction just west of Leggett. (See here for more info.)
