Wintry Conditions To Hit Northern California to Ring in the New Year! (credit: NWS Eureka, California)
DISCUSSION: As yet another Pacific low pressure system moves ashore into many parts of the Pacific Northwest, there is again a renewed threat for heavier snowfall at points of higher elevation across parts of northern California. As stated in the post above (courtesy of the National Weather Service office in Eureka, California), the main highways being impacted across northern California include (but may not be limited to) highway routes 3, 36, 96, 101, 199, and 299). As a result of this incoming snowfall, it is imperative to call ahead if you are flying out of any regional airports (regardless of whether your flight is domestic or international). If you happen to be driving across this part of northern California or points just outside of this region, be sure to leace extra travel time over the next 24 to 48 hours as some mountainside roads/highways may very well become tracherous to near impassible at times.
