Track Doppler radar as rain, wind hit Sacramento region, snow falls in Sierra

Monday is a Weather Alert Day due to the heavy rain and wind in the forecast across Northern California. Meteorologist Heather Waldman has an overview of what to expect: Periods of soaking rain are forecast for the Valley on Monday. The wind will pick up too with gusts to 45 mph expected on the east side of the Valley. The strongest winds are most likely between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. as a band of heavy rain moves from west to east. Showers will continue overnight into Tuesday morning. This amount of rainfall should not impact streams and creeks in Sacramento County as much as it did during October’s historic rainfall event. But you could still expect clogged drains and some street flooding.Meanwhile, up in the mountains, snow levels will steadily drop from 5,500 feet to about 4,500 feet later Monday afternoon. By Tuesday morning, snow levels will be between 3,000 and 4,000 feet, dropping to 2,000 feet later in the day. Final snow accumulation will reach 5 to 6 feet at and above 6,000 feet by Tuesday evening.
