Yesterday, we noticed a change in the weather patterns of the upcoming storm descending on Northern California. The temperature forecast dropped a little bit, creating a possibility of snow all the way down to Redding. Now, the National Weather Service is announcing that 3 to 4 inches of snow could fall all the way down to 500 feet elevation, exactly where the city sits.
“Heads up Redding & northern Sacramento Valley! Snow is possible down to around 500-800 feet this afternoon-tonight,” the service said in a social media post.
An update of the snow totals from the NWS now includes 2 feet of snow in Lakehead near Shasta Lake and up to 3 feet in Dunsmuir and Mount Shasta:
This storm is a MONSTER! Meanwhile, the rest of NorCal will see a ton of snow as well, including up to 3 feet in Tahoe, Mammoth and Lassen.
Please alter your Thanksgiving travel plans to avoid any dangerous conditions across NorCal roads. Roads are expected to be slick with chain controls and possibly full closures in many high elevated areas.
