HANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Parts of California could be in for a snowy Thanksgiving week as a storm system currently in the Gulf of Alaska moves southeast.
The National Weather Service says the exact track of the storm is still uncertain, but it could bring hazardous weather to the central interior of the state Tuesday through Thanksgiving.
Forecasters say it's expected to be cold, potentially dropping snow levels to around 2,500 feet in the Sierra Nevada and 3,500 feet in the Tehachapi Mountains.
Southern California, meanwhile, is summerlike with highs Friday expected in the 80s as offshore flow pumps up temperatures.
However, a fire weather watch will be in effect Friday evening through early Sunday in Los Angeles and Ventura counties because of gusty Santa Ana winds, low humidity and very dry vegetation.
