Cold Front Brings Rain, Mountain Snow To California

On Tuesday, a strong cold front from the Gulf of Alaska was expected to hit drought-stricken California, bringing extensive rain, mountain snow, strong winds, and abnormally low temperatures.

Winter storm warnings were projected to go into force in much of the Sierra Nevada by early afternoon, even though the calendar still read autumn. Forecasters warned against travelling in the mountains because of the anticipated worsening weather.

According to the National Weather Service, travel might be extremely challenging or impossible. Drivers could anticipate chain controls and delays due to the first heavy snowfall of the season, according to Truckee’s California Highway Patrol office in the Sierra north of Lake Tahoe.
