(ORDO NEWS) — An off-season storm system brought snow to higher areas of California while thunderstorms passed through the foothills, as well as the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.
According to the National Meteorological Service (NWS), the source of the storm is an unusually deep and cold upper-level low-pressure region near the California-Oregon border. The morning snow accumulated in Sierra Nevada was reportedly caused havoc on the roads around Donner Peak and on I-80.

Snow continued on Tuesday, with winter meteorological tips released this afternoon as the storm brought moderate snowfall to the region.
“If you can believe it, we have snow in the forecast for the California mountains,” Janis Dean, senior meteorologist, told Fox News.
The storm system also caused flash floods in Sacramento and the northern valleys of San Joaquin. Wind recommendations were valid for the western region of the latter and were planned for the southern California inland mountains.
As of Wednesday, May 20, temperatures began to heat up as the cool weather system exited Southern California.
According to the NWS forecast, on Friday morning, May 22, it will be mostly clear and sunny, but in the evening there will be variable cloud cover and wind. Then the weather will be normal on weekends.
