Blizzard conditions in the Sierra, travel not advised

0 0

We’re talking snowfall totals of 5-12 feet for elevations above the 5,000′ level for this storm in what could be a top 5 snow producer.

Blizzard Warnings for the Sierra went into effect Thursday morning, with snow and high winds moving in Thursday night. Expect snowfall rates of 2-4 inches per hour combined with damaging wind gusts of 60-80 mph – making for whiteout conditions, especially at elevations above 5,000′.

Travel over the Sierra will be next to impossible on Friday. Anyone who ventures outside will risk becoming lost and disoriented in a whiteout, and anyone who must travel should pack a survival kit in their vehicle in the event of an emergency.

This will not be a major storm for the Sacramento Valley.
