Major winter storm headed from California to Midwest

A MAJOR winter storm is expected to bring a foot or more of snow to mountainous areas of California on Tuesday before turning inland and striking as far northeast as Chicago and the Midwest, the National Weather Service said.

Mountainous parts of Los Angeles, San Diego and Ventura counties in California were under winter storm warnings, and snow could present a danger on mountain highways, including I-15, the weather service said.

The storm is expected to dump widespread snowfall across the mountains of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and parts of Arizona on Wednesday and Thursday, reported.

Weather Channel meteorologist Nick Wiltgen said the storm could bring snowfalls of up to an inch an hour for several hours, and produce double-digit snowfalls along the I-80 corridor.

Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri are in the crosshairs, and some computer models suggest that Chicago will get heavy snow late in the week.

  1. I can tell you its pretty darn cold here in the San Francisco Bay area. Not Midwest cold mind you, but pretty nippy for us thin skinned Californios. Rain, wind, thunder hail. Snow level down to 1500′(457m).
    I am at sea level so I am not worried.
    Like I say not midwest cold and I don’t want to sound whiney but it is cold for the bay area.
