We are seeing a triple threat all day Sunday which are rain, snow and wind.
We've got a winter storm warning for our mountain communities that's in effect from 9 a-m today until noon Monday.
We're going to see snow accumulation from 4 to 8 inches at our elevations above 6000 feet and 1 to two inches near 4000 feet--so very high chances our regular snow areas will get a dusting.
Wind Advisories and a High Wind Warning have been added to our list of hazardous weather alerts for today. #cawx pic.twitter.com/qwTG5dd0Nt

Wind gusts today could reach up to 70 miles per hour--through the Tehachapi pass and higher elevations.

This means driving can be difficult--snow covered roads, blowing snow with the high winds, so take extra caution when heading out the door.
Just another reminder to be careful on our roadways--we have a high likelihood of travel delays and road closures--please let friends or family know who are headed in and out of town about this winter weather.
