Special Statement

Statement as of 5:46 AM PDT on October 24, 2014

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on October 24, 2014


... Strong winds in the Sacramento Valley and over the higher
Sierra on Saturday with light snowfall at pass levels...

An early season Pacific frontal system will be moving into
northern California late tonight and Saturday. Although this
system is not expected to produce significant amounts of
precipitation... it will produce a period of fairly strong winds
from mid day Saturday through early Saturday evening. In the
northern and central Sacramento Valley winds of 20 to 30 mph with
gusts up to 40 mph are forecast. Over the higher Sierra... some
areas could see winds of 35 to 45 mph with gusts as high as 60
mph Saturday afternoon and night.

As the main frontal system passes Saturday night... snow levels
will be dropping and could get down to the major pass levels by
Sunday morning. As a result... the major Sierra passes could see an
inch or two of snowfall around the 6500 to 7000 foot snow level.
Even this light amount of snowfall could cause travel issues if
not prepared. If traveling through the Sierra late Saturday night
or Sunday morning... carry tire chains and be prepared for travel
delays.
