DISCUSSION: As more cold air which has its origins from far northwestern Canada continues heading towards the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, NWS forecast offices are getting ready mentally. With the arrival of this cold air from western Canada into portions of Northern California early next week, there are relatively large concerns for the more elevated portions of the intermountain sectiosn of the western United States. Confidence is low in the details, but this reinforcement of colder air coupled with strong incoming weather systems off the eastern Pacific Ocean may bring a bit of very low elevation snow! Be sure to stay tuned to the Scaramento NWS office website as well as right here at the Global Weather and Climate Center for updates on this situation as the forecast becomes more clear.
