Local mountains could get a taste of winter weather

Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 am Wednesday for both the SLO and SB county mountains.

Snow accumulations 3 to 5 inches above 3500 feet is possible. While snow levels will drop to as low as 2000ft the impact below 3500ft is expected to be minor.

Snow will begin near sunset today then taper off early Wednesday morning peaking this evening.

Particularly in SB County, areas west to northwest winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will form this evening then become north after midnight and may persist through Wednesday afternoon. Isolated gusts near 60 mph are possible.

Snow, blowing snow and icy roads will likely cause significant travel difficulties on roads. Major roadways that will likely be affected include portions of Highway 154 and Highway 166.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
