Above 5,000 feet we'll be measuring the snow in feet. 5-8 feet of snow on the peaks, and ridges up to 10 feet- that's 120 inches of snow.
Travel- difficult? Impossible? More than likely for a couple of days.
Near Donner Pass and Kirkwood to get up around 97 inches, 93 inches, respectively. South Lake Tahoe will be nearing seven feet of snow.
Holiday forecast: Wet weather coming to Bay Area this week
It's good Monday and will be good for the most part Tuesday. And it will progressively gets worse.
It's breezy and windy and that means the possibility of whiteout conditions and closed highways and interstates.
You're absolutely going to need them through Sunday.
After today, waves of rain & mountain snow through Sunday. That's 6 consecutive days!— Mike Nicco (@MikeNiccoABC7) December 20, 2021
