A change in the weather is in store for Interior Northern California


By: National Weather Service Sacramento CA

March 17, 2013 - Above normal temperatures will be replaced by cooler temperatures along with rain and snow Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Chances of rain and high elevation snow will increase during the day on Tuesday and become likely Tuesday night. The rain and snow will taper to showers early Wednesday morning from west to east within the valley then by late morning to early afternoon for the Sierra Nevada.


* Possible travel delays and chains required in the Sierra Nevada.

* Slick roadways could lead to an increase in traffic accidents.

Rainfall amounts within the valley will generally range from a quarter to a half an inch of rainfall. Rainfall amounts over the Foothills will range from one half to an inch of rain with local higher amounts. Roads will become slick so motorist should increase following distances.

Snow levels will be high with this system so only the higher elevations are expected to be impacted by this storm. Interstate 80 and Highways 50 and 88 will likely see snow accumulating on the roadways below pass levels. Motorists traveling into the Sierra Nevada should be prepared for possible travel delays and carry chains. Snow accumulations of 3 to 8 inches will be possible below pass levels down to around 6500 feet with minor accumulations possible below that level. Higher amounts are possible over the peaks.
