Winter storm warning in effect until Wednesday

LAKE COUNTY - A winter storm warning remains in effect for Lake County until 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Sacramento.


Residents in Lakeport, along with others areas in Lake County, started their day with falling snow, frozen sidewalks and hazardous road conditions.


While rain was predominant throughout the day, the NWS has issued a winter storm warning for Lake County and a hazardous weather outlook for inland Mendocino County that will last overnight and into Wednesday afternoon.


The NWS predicts that 2 inches of snow will fall to nearly 1,000 feet overnight - with overnight temperaturess in the mid 20s to low 30s.


During the next 24 hours to 36 hours, the NWS believes the hazardous weather across Northern California will continue, with significant snowfall totals possible above 1,500 feet - with nearly a foot of snow possible below 4,000 feet.


Twenty-four to 30 inches of snow may fall over the higher elevations by Wednesday afternoon, according to the NWS.


Six to 10 inches of snow are forecast above 4,000 feet, with 2 to 6 inches possible above 2,000 feet in Lake County and above 1,500 feet in inland Mendocino County overnight.


Strong winds are also possible with localized gusts up to 45 mph which may cause white-out conditions overnight and into tomorrow.


On Wednesday, snow levels are expected to stay in the 2,000-foot range, with high temperatures in the mid-40s at lower elevations.


A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected or will occur, according to the NWS, making travel very hazardous or impossible.
