Storm Team Alert: All of CNY under a Winter Storm Warning

Storm Team Alert: All of CNY under a Winter Storm Warning

It's a favorable outcome from "the biggest storm of the season", as Jim Mathews, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento, described it to The Los Angeles Times.

"We encourage everyone to have a plan for this week's storm and to be prepared for outages that could occur".

It comes down to simple math.

The Placer County Sheriff's Department tweeted that it appears that all skiers and snowboarders had been accounted for.

Winter Storm Quinn has slowed travel across parts of northern California.

The only day so far this year with more than 1 inch of rain was January 8, when San Francisco recorded 3.15 inches, Oakland 2.56 and San Jose 1.40. That's almost 16 feet of snow.

Sierra-at-Tahoe reported six inches of snow over the last 24 hours, bringing the summit's week-long total to two feet, four inches.

This week's storm will make up some, but not even half, of that deficit.

Caltrans reports about 90 miles of Interstate 80 are closed between Colfax, California, and the Nevada state line due to whiteout conditions.

Stephanie Myers, a spokeswoman for Heavenly Mountain Resort and Kirkwood Mountain Resort in Lake Tahoe, estimated snow was falling at about 2 inches (5 centimeters) an hour. "A few weeks ago we were at the lowest in history".

Snow amounts will be lighter the farther north you are.

Heavy, plowable and shovelable snow is likely.

"These events are going to improve things considerably".

"But we've got to have a lot more like this just to get back to average", he said.

A stronger storm system will move into #NorCal starting late Wednesday. Valleys and the Inland Empire will also see around an inch of rain Thursday night and an inch or more on Friday.

Drivers should be very cautious when driving on many state roads. "Winter recreation as well as water supply are hurting".

A wind advisory continues until 4 a.m. Saturday for the Las Vegas area, where Clark County health officials have issued an air quality alert for Friday due to the possibility of elevated levels of blowing dust in winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour. Travel is expected to be hard, including during the Friday morning commute.

Meanwhile, in Southern California, the worst of a major storm passed without triggering new debris flows on slopes denuded by summer wildfires.

Foothills: Scattered showers and snow showers. "They are rare. But they are possible".
