Light Snow Expected On Some Bay Area Mountians

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Forecasters say another weather system moving into Northern California will be bringing cold temperatures and snow to some of the mountains in the San Francisco Bay area.

The National Weather Service says the combination of temperatures around the freezing mark and precipitation being carried by the latest front could turn drop light snow as low as 2,500 feet.

Some of the highest elevations — especially in Monterey and San Benito counties — could see between two to five inches of snow through Saturday evening.

Along the coast, forecasters are warning people to be careful walking along area beaches. A high surf advisory is in effect from Sonoma County south to the Central California coast.

The National Weather Service says the surf in some areas could be as high as 22 feet.

In Southern California, forecasters are predicting rain and a chance of thunderstorms.
