Winter Returns: Up to Four Feet of Snow Expected in NorCal this Week

With NorCal’s record snowfall of February in the rearview mirror, March has recently seen a long span of spring weather with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Now, the wet weather is expected to return to Northern California with substantial snowfall hitting the mountains.

A storm is descending upon NorCal and expected to hit Friday and the bulk of the precipitation will fall on Friday night. The mountains could see heavy snow in the 48-hour span and the storm will peak at Lassen Volcanic National Park with up to four feet of snowfall. The Tahoe area is expected to receive around a foot.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory as the storm could impact travel throughout the weekend. Chain controls and possible road closures are possible in the Tahoe region.

The snow will add to the already stellar snow in the mountains, with most ski resorts currently holding above average snowpack. Lassen Park has seen the most snow this year and lower parts of the parks still buried in 15 feet of snow.

In addition to this week’s storm, another storm is expected to hit Monday and last all next week. And you though winter was over…
