Weather across the globe will vary as per seasons as well as climatic patterns. Let us get to know that where will it rain and where will snow make an entrance and cause slippery roads and icy paths, also where will the residents bake under the scorching sun.
California will be under a spell of storm systems this week that will send rounds of soaking rain across the state and snow in the higher terrain. It is believed that the storms will be guided toward California through a strong jet stream over the Pacific Ocean.
Each storm will bring an increasing risk of flooding and mudslides as snow further buries the mountains, making travel increasingly difficult. Not only this, the storm has full potential to drop several inches of rain in the foothills east of the Sacramento Valley. Whereas, in the mountains, there can be at least a couple yards of snow in the high country of the central and southern Sierra. The harder part is that at the time of such weather, the Pacific Highway gets shut down leading to travel delays.
