Storms pile up; snow is possible

A series of storms stacking up over the Pacific Ocean could bring more cold and blustery weather to Nevada County for the next seven to eight days.

Harry Stockman at the weather service said the current system should pass through the area today, but residents are likely to see another one tonight and Friday morning. That will be followed by yet another system Sunday night and Monday morning, “and maybe another at the end of next week,” Stockman said.

A winter weather advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Sacramento that lasts through 10 a.m. this morning. Early commuters can expect pockets of ice and snow on the roads as low as 1,000 feet and caution is advised. Thunderstorms are a possibility as the system moves through.

There will be expected lulls between the storms this afternoon and again Saturday and Sunday during the day, before the inclement weather moves back in Sunday night.

High and low temperatures are expected to range in the 30s from this morning to Sunday morning as the cold systems move through. Night temperatures are expected to be below freezing.

By Sunday afternoon the temperature is expected to rise to 51 degrees and the storm due that night will be warm, causing lows to be in the mid-40s. Monday should see 51 degrees for a high again, with 35 projected as the low.
