After a break in the wet weather on Tuesday, more rain and snow is on the way Wednesday through Friday. New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible Wednesday afternoon. As the front moves through it will bring snow and strong winds. As of this afternoon, heavy rain was already moving into western Washington. Plan on hard travel conditions over the Sierra passes Thursday and Thursday night. Snow is expected early morning Thursday through mid-morning.

The snow/rain will be buffeted by a south wind 15 mph to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph forecast. Some parts of the Interior will see 4-7 inches of snow with up to 12 inches near the Alaska Range.

Quiet Weather for Now
Another round of snow expected on mountain passes starting Tuesday night

Motorists planning travel into the mountains of the Sierra Nevada during this time frame should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions. Damage to trees and power lines is possible. This is because even though severe winter weather may not happen every winter, Central Alabama is still no stranger to snow, ice, and extreme cold events. If you must travel, prepare for long delays and carry an emergency kit with extra food, water and clothing.
