1 min read

After snow falls in some parts of California for the first time in years, more winter weather is predicted to hit the Bay Area in the coming days. 

According to the National Weather Service Bay area, areas above 2,500 feet are forecasted to see snow, winds, and poor visibility. 

Starting at 10 p.m. Sunday, NWS issued a winter weather advisory for the North Bay. Mountains above 3,000 feet are expected to see 5-10 inches of snow.

The Sierra Nevada mountains are still on blizzard warning. The area is predicted to see 4-8 feet of snow on the highest peaks and 2-4 feet of snow in the valleys. 

NWS said snow isn’t the only thing to expect in the coming days. The majority of the Bay Area is on thunderstorm outlook for Monday morning and afternoon. NWS is forecasting dangerous lightning, localized flooding, strong winds, and even small hail.

By Wednesday, the weather should calm down, but winds could still reach 40-50 mph.
