California, United States Of America
Gusting winds on Monday reach 90mph mark in some parts of Sierra. A significant change in California’s weather is visible, which is going to bring rain and snow across the state on Thanksgiving. Kathy Hoxsie, who is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard, said in her statement that Los Angeles County is expected to see a broad swath of precipitation. Wednesday will experience most torrential rain and snow from morning till afternoon. There are going to be lighter showers on Thursday and Friday, which can extend till the weekend. It is estimated that there will be 1 to 2 inches of rainfall for the coast and valley, while foothills and lower elevations of the mountains will see 1.5 to 3-inch rain. There is a possibility of up to 1 foot of snow on higher altitudes. The snow levels may plummet from 4000 feet to 2500 feet by Thursday, which means dusting of powder will be seen on 5 Freeway over the Grapevine, along with Highway 14 and Highway 33. The storm can drop more than a foot of snow at the top of Palomar Mountain. Other mountains and elevations may experience snowfall ranging between 4 inches to nearly a foot. Some of the ski resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains are expected to get as much as 2 feet of snow, which is good news for adventure lovers. The weather service suggested that traveling throughout the week will get affected by extreme weather conditions, and people should be careful about flight delays and slippery roads.
