Sierra Nevada Braces for Historic Snowfall and High Winds This Weekend

  Friday, March 1st, 2024 Source: Accuweather

The Sierra Nevada is on the verge of experiencing a monumental snowstorm, projected to unload 6-10 feet of snow, accompanied by winds reaching 60-75 mph, creating severe blizzard conditions and significant snowdrifts. This weather event is likely to close major transportation routes, including Donner Pass and sections of I-5, and poses a high risk of stranding motorists. The storm’s intensity could compare to historic snowfalls, potentially eclipsing the massive storm of February 2023.

Alongside the snow, the storm is expected to bring rain to lower elevations without causing major flooding, while strong winds could create coastal issues and elevate wildfire risks in interior regions. This significant snowfall is anticipated to mitigate the Sierra’s current snowfall deficit, contributing positively to California’s water supply.
