Weather Bulletin: Winter Storms Impacting Us Through Late Tuesday

Forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Reno have issued a Winter Weather Advisory as a series of storms targets northeastern California between Saturday morning and late Tuesday night.

Here in Lassen County, along with eastern Plumas and eastern Sierra counties, including the cities of Portola, Westwood, Sierraville and Loyalton, the weather advisory is for elevations above 5,000.

Two warnings have been issued by the NWS – a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 10:00a.m. Saturday until 4:00a.m. Sunday, followed by a Winter Storm Watch for Sunday afternoon through late Tuesday night when a much larger storm is expected.

For the Winter Weather Advisory above 5,000 feet, snow accumulations are expected to be up to three inches. Winds will be gusting as high as 35mph.

For the Winter Storm Watch, heavy snow is expected. Snow accumulations up to 10 inches are forecast in Lassen, eastern Plumas and eastern Sierra counties.

Roads, and especially bridges and overpasses, will likely become slick and hazardous. Travel could be very difficult. The hazardous conditions could impact the Monday morning and evening commutes.

With increased traffic during the holiday weekend, prepare for longer commute times and possible travel delays.
