The snow started falling hard on Monday night in Northern California and hasn’t let up! Following a November 1st storm that kicked off winter in the region, this second storm is coming in hot, bringing up to 60 inches of snow to high elevation regions.
We are still waiting on early snow reports, but early indications show at least a foot of new snow in all of the high-elevation areas of NorCal. With the snow continuing to fall, the roadways are very difficult to navigate right now. Chain controls are currently mandatory on both Tahoe and Mammoth roadways, and closures are very possible later today.
Here’s a quick look at the roadways as of 10:30 am on Tuesday:
From the looks of it, you should probably avoid any mountain travel at this time.
