Winter Weather Advisory Extended

Updated: January 21 2010 at 3:30pm PST

I always thought that a 100% chance of rain meant it was going to rain for sure. Not so much anymore. Not a drop of rain today, even though the NWS was calling for a 100% chance of rain all day. At some point, the Winter Weather Advisory for today was canceled.

There’s only been a few sprinkles, a few flurries and that’s about it. I don’t know if I really believe it, but here we go again…….

The NWS has once again issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and ice in The Mother Lode from 10pm this evening until 10am tomorrow morning.

Rain showers are expected to turn to snow showers around 2,000 – 2,500 feet later tonight and into Friday morning. Accumulations of 1 – 3 inches around 2,500 are expected , with 3 – 6 inches near 3,000 possible.

Watch for snow and ice on roadways as low as 2,000 feet. Expect periods of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Drive safely and carry chains.

Rain and snow showers will increase again later this morning, with occasional heavy snow showers expected down to 2,000 feet this afternoon. Precipitation wil taper off to scattered showers later today.
