... Two weak but cold weather systems to bring low elevation snow
to northern California...

A couple of relatively weak weather systems are forecast to drop
southward through northern California over the next few days. The
first will move through from north to south late today and
Saturday. The second late Sunday through Monday. Although neither
of these systems are particularly strong, they will contain cold
air producing very low snow levels compared to the warmer storms
of the last several weeks.

Snow levels with the first system could go as low as 1000 feet
over the northern mountains to 2500 feet over the west slopes of
the Sierra. This would bring snow down into the foothills. The
second system will be only slightly warmer with expected snow
levels 1500 feet over the northern mountains to around 3000 feet
Sierra west slopes.

Snowfall amounts with the first system are forecast to range from
2-3 inches over Interstate 5 in Shasta County to only 1 or 2
inches over the Sierra passes.

Snowfall amounts with the second system will be a little more
ranging from 3-4 inches over Interstate 5 in Shasta County to 4-6
inches over the Sierra passes.

Be prepared if traveling over the mountains over the next several
days. Although snow amounts will not be large, slippery or snow
covered roads are likely and chain controls may be needed with
snow levels lower than experienced over the last several weeks.
