One week after a powerful “bomb cyclone”caused travel chaos along the west coast during the busy Thanksgiving travel period, another powerful storm is set to deliver a round of heavy rain and significant snow in time for the weekend. Heavy mountain snow will impact areas around 6,500 feet, falling to 5,500 feat by Sunday night, according to the NWS. The heaviest snow is forecast to fall Friday night through early Sunday. Forecasters warn the storm will create dangerous travel conditions, with a “significant reduction in visibility” in addition to whiteout conditions possible as the system moves through. Downed trees, branches, and power outages are also possible due to this storm.
