02/23/2023 – Upcoming Storm
Good afternoon, all. I just received an email from Yolo OES regarding the upcoming storm that will arrive Thursday morning. It looks as if it will be historic for cold, snow at low levels (down to 1,000’) and high winds, especially in higher elevations. Damage is expected to be significant above 2,500 feet (downed lines, trees, etc). Within Yolo County, the forecast includes potential wind gusts up to 30-50 mph. It’s time to batten down the hatches again and secure lighter items so they don’t blow around. Please watch for downed limbs and trees, and report any obstacles in the road or damage to public infrastructure to City Hall during work hours: 530-795-4910, or to 530-795-4561 after hours. City Hall will be open this Friday.
The weather advisory is from Thursday, 10 a.m. – Friday, 4 p.m. Rain will begin tomorrow afternoon / evening. Travel into the hills and higher elevations is not recommended due to the predicted historic snowfalls and damage from high winds. This looks like a good weekend for soup, binge watching your favorite show, or a good book.
