(CBS13) — Wind, rain and snow are coming into our region of Northern California Tuesday as the latest winter storm heads east.
The rain caused slick streets and caused several accidents around Sacramento. Further west in Vacaville, a dump truck hit a power pole when it swerved to miss oncoming traffic. The roadway was closed as crews worked to clean up the mess.
In the Sacramento Valley, strong wind gusts are topping 20 mph as the storm band moves south east towards Stockton and Modesto.
Rain was also coming down in the high country. It was a wet commute for drivers in Roseville and Auburn.
Snow is falling at the 7,000-foot level. It’s expected to fall at 4,500 feet a little later today when a second, colder band of the storm moves in.
On I-80 in the Sierra road crews are making preparations for the coming snow. Chain controls were in effect for Highway 50.
