Storms, snow are likely today

Thunderstorms and snow down to 3,000 feet are possible with the latest blustery cold front expected to keep moving through the Nevada County foothills today.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento said the front is expected to linger through the afternoon, with clearing beginning tonight. The cold storm system could make weather very unstable with the possibility of severe thunderstorms bringing hail, damaging winds or even small tornadoes.

Periods of moderate to heavy snow are expected in the higher elevations, with snow levels coming down to 3,000 to 4,000 feet. Mountain travelers are warned to carry extra water, food and warm clothing in case of emergencies on the road.

Highs today will be in the mid-40s with lows around freezing tonight. Spring weather is expected to return Wednesday, with clear skies and high temperatures climbing back up to the mid-50s. Lows will be in the 40s.

Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected for Thursday and through the weekend. Highs will climb back into the mid-60s, with lows in the 40s.
