• Winter Storm Warning for Western Siskiyou County County, California
  • Winter Storm Warning issued March 22 at 4:17AM PDT until March 23 at 11:00PM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 11 p.m.
  • Expires: Friday, March 23, 2018 at 11 p.m.
  • ...Heavy mountain snow and possible low land snow Tonight into
    Friday night...
    .A strong cold front will move through southern Oregon and
    northern California today. As cold air pours in behind the front
    tonight, snow levels will drop rapidly to around 1500 feet. Snow
    levels will then fluctuate between 1500 and 2500 feet, highest
    during Friday afternoon.
    At the same time, a rich plume of Pacific moisture will take aim
    at the area, and the result will be very heavy snow in the
    mountains. Particularly hard hit will be the mountains of Curry,
    Josephine, and western Siskiyou counties where several feet of
    snow are possible. Heavy snow is also expected over the Cascades,
    Mt. Shasta area, and portions of the east side, although
    confidence in snow amounts is lower for these areas.
    Snow may also impact lower elevations at times, especially at
    night and especially the more snow-prone areas like the
    I-5 Passes north of Grants Pass and the Illinois Valley.
    TO 11 PM PDT FRIDAY...
    * WHAT...Very heavy snow is expected. Total snow accumulations of
    1 to 2 feet with local amounts up to 3 feet.
    * WHERE...The western Siskiyou County mountains, mainly above
    2500 feet. This includes Sawyer`s Bar road west of Etna and
    highway 3 south of Callahan.
    * WHEN...From 11 PM this evening to 11 PM PDT Friday.
    * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Travel will be very difficult to
    impossible, including during the evening commute on Friday. Be
    prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times. In
    addition, southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph will create areas of
    blowing snow, especially over peaks and exposed areas.
