MENDOCINO Co. — The National Weather Service is predicting a freeze along with possible hazardous weather, including snow, in the northern Mendocino and across Humboldt and Del Norte counties, with more wintery weather expected again in next couple days.
The hazardous weather outlook predicts sub freezing temperatures across high terrain across northwest California, with snow levels for the north coast region falling to around 2500 feet. Showers may also pick up tonight, and may produce one to three inches of snow in some areas, such as Berry Summit, Mendocino National Forest, and other parts of northern Mendocino County. Areas in the southern parts of the county, including Ukiah and south, are under a Freeze Watch until 9am Tuesday, Dec. 6.
The current forecast is predicting that showers will continue through early Tuesday morning, which may yield an additional two inches of snow in high terrain.
The National Weather Service encourages drivers who may encounter snow to carry chains, a tank of gas, and a safety kit in the car. It’s never a bad idea to have a blanket and a gallon of water either!
