Weekend Winter Storm Recap

This weekend saw two snowfall events. The first occurred on Friday dropping a band of about 2-4 inches of snow near and along the Highway 14 area. Saturday into Sunday saw a more potent system with higher snowfall amounts and much stronger winds develop. Again, the highway 14 corridor was the locus of heavy snowfall with a band of 8 to 14 inches falling. North to northwest winds increased markedly on Sunday morning with widespread wind gusts of 40 to 55 mph as well as fairly widespread whiteout conditions in locations with about 2-3 inches or more of snow.
