mountain snow, and travel issues are forecast to continue this
afternoon and tonight. Shower chances continue into Tuesday.

under some of the heavier cells. The heaviest snow is expected to
last through the evening then gradually taper overnight into

The low will be slowly moving southward along the coast tonight

over the southern areas of the forecast area...mainly south of
Marysville and including the adjacent foothills so have mention of
slight chance of afternoon through early evening thunderstorms.

On Tuesday the low moves off the coast of Southern California.
Some moisture warping back around may produce some showers but for
