4 inches per hour snow could amount to 10ft in parts of California with warning high winds could cause power outages


Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Important Takeaways:

  • Biggest storm of winter to bury part of Sierra Nevada with over 100 inches of snow
  • A blizzard lasting days will blast the Sierra Nevada and Siskiyous with tremendous snow into this weekend with the likelihood of travel shutdowns and life-threatening conditions.
  • A massive storm will unload a general 6-10 feet of snow and bring high winds in the Sierra Nevada through this weekend. The storm will not only close the major roads in the passes but may bury and isolate communities for an extended period, AccuWeather meteorologists warn.
  • “The snow will fall at the rate of 4 inches per hour at times, while 60- to 75-mph winds will create a dangerous blizzard with mountainous snowdrifts,”
  • The combination of heavy snow and high winds is likely to lead to power outages that could take many days, if not weeks, to resolve in isolated areas. Those in backwoods locations will need a safe means of heat and plenty of food. Experts warn that chimneys and exhaust from furnaces will need to be kept open to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
