“A cool upper level weather system is moving through Northern California today. Some of us saw cool overnight lows as a result!

In addition, this system will likely bring a few snow showers to the high Sierra this afternoon. A quick 1-2 inches of snow accumulation will be possible above 7000 feet.” – NOAA Sacramento, CA yesterday
