California faces week of storms, likely travel troubles

Weather

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is facing a stormy holiday week, with heavy mountain snowfall and widespread rain elsewhere.

Forecasters say successive waves of precipitation moving into Northern California from Tuesday through Sunday afternoon will coat parts of the Sierra Nevada with 1 to 5 feet of snow and possibly up to 8 feet at higher elevations. There’s also potential for significant low-elevation snow, including over Interstate 5 north of Redding, an area where last week’s storms shut the highway for hours.

The wet weather pattern will begin to affect Southern California Tuesday night and bring rain and high-elevation snow through Thursday, followed by unsettled and showery weather through the weekend.
