NWS Bulletin: Winter Storm Warning Goes Into Effect As Potent Storm Approaches

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Lassen, eastern Plumas and Sierra counties, warning that heavy snow is possible, even down to the valley floor, beginning at 1:00p.m. today.

Forecasters are highlighting a potential for blizzard conditions, and heavy snow is expected off and on through Wednesday at 4:00p.m. The worst conditions will be late this afternoon through tonight.

Total snow accumulations of 3 to 7 inches are expected down to the valley floors. In the mountains west of Susanville 6 to 15 inches are expected to fall.

The heavy snow will be accompanied by winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph.

A period of blizzard conditions with near zero visibility is possible tonight due to snow and blowing snow.

This storm is coinciding with one of the busiest travel periods of the year, resulting in major travel impacts.

The NWS is recommending that you avoid travel if possible, you could be stuck in your vehicle for many hours. If you must travel, prepare for long delays and carry tire chains, an emergency kit with extra food, water and proper clothing.

If you stay home, have a backup plan in case of power outages.

The latest road conditions can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
