JH Heating Weather: Series of Wet Windy Storms Set to Clobber Susanville This Weekend

Good morning everybody, here is a quick update on weather conditions including information on a series of wet and windy storms headed our way over the next five days.

The National Weather Service is warning Lassen County that a fast-moving storm system will bring a period of wet weather to the Sierra and far western Nevada Wednesday and Wednesday evening.

For the most part the agency expects the wet weather with this first storm system to be short-lived with accumulating snow only above 6,500 feet.

A more significant set of storms is shaping up for Thursday night into the weekend. These storms will likely tap moisture from the central Pacific and confidence is high that it will bring a prolonged period of heavy precipitation to the Sierra and adjacent areas of eastern California and far western Nevada.

In other words rain, and plenty of it, is headed our way.

These storms will likely have snow levels above 7,500 feet and significant snowfall will likely be relegated to only the highest elevations of the Sierra. Heavy rains in lower elevations may create some minor rises in streams but flooding on major streams and rivers in our area is not expected.

Confidence is lower in terms of the weather impacts to western Nevada. Depending on the track of the storm, the main threat in western Nevada Friday and Saturday could either be strong winds or it could be periods of heavy rain.

Travel will be affected over the higher passes in the Sierra this coming weekend.

We will keep you updated with all the latest storm information right here on SusanvilleStuff and at our sister site
