More snow possible with new fronts

Another strong weather system is moving into western Nevada County which could bring snow Tuesday afternoon, the possibility of thundershowers and hail, but most likely rain to the foothills.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook earlier Tuesday that will last through 4 p.m., with snow levels projected at 4,000 feet.

Harry Stockman at the weather service said those levels could drop as the storm moves in. Warm air from the ground mixing with the cold air moving in could produce hail and snow below 4,000 feet and will almost surely bring rain showers tapering off in the evening.

Tuesday’s front will be followed by two more, one on Wednesday night and another on Thursday night that are expected to bring rain showers. However, the National Weather Service said Thursday’s colder front could bring snow levels down to 1,000 feet.
