The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Monday afternoon and night for the North Bay hills above 1,000 feet, according to forecaster Bob Benjamin.

Snow is expected in the mountains in northern Napa County and northeastern Sonoma County near the Lake County border, Benjamin said.

Higher peaks such as Mount Saint Helena, which overlooks Napa valley, could see 3 to 6 inches of snow by Tuesday morning.

Roadways most prone to accumulate snowfall include state Highway 29 and state Highway 128.
