Storm Tracker Forecast: Very wet & windy Tuesday
Grab your umbrella, get your tire chains handy if you're in our higher elevations, and make sure to give yourself plenty of extra time to get where you need to go before you head out the door Tuesday. A trough of low pressure off the coast of northern California and Oregon is driving a substantial moisture plume over northern California today. This will leave our region with heavy valley rain, heavy mountain snow, and gusty southeast winds through your entire Tuesday. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect in the northern Sierra above 3000' through 8pm Wednesday due to the potential for up to 4' of snow in that area through Wednesday night. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect in the Shasta County Mountains through 11am Wednesday due to heavy snow, and an additional Winter Storm Warning is in effect in Trinity County above 2000' through 2pm Tuesday due to the potential for up to 20 inches of snowfall. A Wind Advisory is in effect in the valley through 5pm Tuesday due to sustained winds up to 30mph, and gusts in the 40mph to 50mph range being possible through the day. Modoc County will be under a Wind Advisory through 2pm Tuesday due to the potential for gusts up to 60mph out of the south. Gusty winds will also be likely in our mountain zones and could result in whiteout conditions when paired with the heavy snowfall through the day on Tuesday. The strongest winds are projected from late morning through early Tuesday evening. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's in the valley, 30's to 40's in the foothills, and 20's to 30's in our mountain zones early Tuesday. Winds will be gusty out of the south and we'll have moderate to heavy rain and snow through the day.
