Storm on the Way: Timeline of Snow in the Sierra and Rain in the Valley

Storm on the Way: Timeline of Snow in the Sierra and Rain in the Valley

The first major storm of the season is expected to hit Northern California this week, KCRA 3 meteorologist Eileen Javora said, with Monday and Tuesday designated as KCRA 3 impact days for Sierra travel. The cold front with rain and snow arrives around midnight to 1 a.m. Monday through the valley. This is also when the snow will start to accumulate in the Sierra. Rain and snow in the forecast make Monday and Tuesday KCRA 3 impact days to highlight possible travel issues. Javora says the snow will start above 5,000 feet and likely drop in elevation early in the morning. Officials warn of potentially dangerous driving conditions in the Sierra. Things to know about the Monday morning ride Some of the best rain in the valley will pass just before the morning ride. Rain will fall overnight, making the roads wet. However, around 8 a.m. Monday the valley should see a break in showers. In the afternoon, scattered showers and thunderstorms will rise. There will also be regular snowfall in the Sierra. Tuesday conditions are expected to worsen by Tuesday morning the windy and wet weather will worsen in the valley. For the Sierra, expect heavy mid-morning snowfall that will persist. Rain will also persist in the valley Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning. Thursday promises to be dry. There is potential between Monday and Wednesday for 1-2 inches of rain in the Valley, 2-3 inches of rain in the foothills and 1-4 feet of snow for the Sierra.
