A Few Feet Of Snow For Central Sierra
PG&E forecaster John Lindsey says a major storm with 50 mph winds may be heading our way. If it arrives as advertised it could be the season’s first real drought buster with heavy Sierra snow too. “Although it is 6 days out it looks promising” with up to 4 inches along the Central Coast and 7 inches in parts of the Bay Area and Sacramento. Most of the state would get wet.
The timetable calls for hard rain to fall as soon as Saturday and on Sunday just as many Californians are heading home after Thanksgiving. The storm is expected continue Monday through Wednesday.
