Another storm forecast for today
January 2, 2007
Another winter blast rolling in late tonight is expected to bring more windy, snowy weather to the region.
Sierra travelers will have to use caution with snow falling at the higher elevations from Wednesday through Thursday nights. However, once the cold front passes, travelers can drive under partly cloudy skies Friday through next Tuesday, with no precipitation expected.
The National Weather Service said the slow cold front will probably arrive from the coast Wednesday afternoon. It will bring strong and gusty winds Wednesday night and leave up to a foot or more of snow above 7,000 and 8 inches at lake level by the time it leaves Thursday night.
As that storm progresses through the Sierra it will become colder, leaving the possibility of snow below 2,000 feet by Thursday morning. However, the bulk of the snow is expected to fall above 4,000 feet.
Highs will be in the low 50s today, with lows in the mid-20s overnight. Highs will drop into the 30s Thursday, with lows dropping into the single digits overnight.
