Another burst of rain, mountain snow to sideswipe California before end of the year

By Brandon Buckingham, AccuWeather Meteorologist

After a powerful storm system brought heavy rain and snow to California around the Christmas holiday, another storm system is lining up to take a similar track.

The previous storm closed Interstate 5 at the Grapevine after heavy snow led to vehicles becoming stuck and similar threats may arise with the next approaching system.

After relatively quiet conditions statewide through the first half of the weekend, the first bouts of wet weather moved into northwestern California by midday on Sunday.

Places like Crescent City and Eureka, California, can expect a grey and rainy day as a result into Sunday evening.

This storm system will also bring down colder air in the upper levels of the atmosphere later this weekend, dropping snow levels to around 3,500 feet in Northern California. Mount Shasta, as well as the northern Sierra Nevada can expect accumulating snow through Sunday night.
