HANFORD – With only one significant rain event since spring, residents of the mountain area may be encouraged to see a wet Thanksgiving holiday.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a pattern change to wet weather is likely by the middle of the week. Its arrival after a very long dry spell will create slick and potentially hazardous driving conditions on area roads.
According to the NWS, several inches of snow may fall over the higher elevations of the Sierra during the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Hikers, campers and motorists should be prepared for much colder temperatures and wintry travel over the higher elevations of the Sierra this holiday weekend.
