Sierra Blizzard Continues

Heavy snow is falling in the Klamath Mountains with a severe blizzard in progress over the Sierra. 

Chain laws are in effect but I-80 is still open. Some are expecting it to close later today. Wind gusts of 100+ mph re occurring and snow accumulations will exceed ten feet in places. 

Here are the latest warnings:
Color code:
  • Orange = blizzard warning
  • Pink = winter storm warning 
  • Gold = high wind warning (50 mph or stronger)
  • Purple = winter weather advisory
  • Dark blue (Colorado) = winter storm watch
  • Magenta = high wildfire danger
Editorial comment: Weather science has done an amazing job with this storm with warnings as early as this past Sunday.
