Accumulations could be substantial in the highest reaches of the Bay Area, the forecasters said. As much as 6 inches could fall on Mount Hamilton (elevation 4,213 feet), Mount Diablo (3,849 feet) and other local hills, the weather service said.
A snow advisory will be in effect from 9 p.m. tonight to 4 p.m. Friday for areas with elevations of 1,000 feet and higher, thanks to a storm system coming down from the Gulf of Alaska that is teaming up with cold air flowing down from Canada.
Wow!! Time to light the fire! Winter is still here. My hat is quite in style.
