HISTORIC STORM SYSTEM HEADING TOWARD THE WEST COAST WITH RECORD-SETTING COLD AIR AND SNOW FALL REACHING THE SJV FLOOR for up to 48 hours!!!

- Long Range has flipped to extremely WET beginning on Dec 5 and continuing thru to the end of the Fantasyland period ending on Dec 10th. Lack of model consistency applies to this!
An unprecedented event is unfolding on weather charts for the entire West Coast, with the incoming storm system which now has the potential to be a record-setting event with cold temps and snowfall to extremely low elevations during the month of NOVEMBER! If current charts verify then snow is possible to some very unusual places within CA over the Holiday weekend!!!
It is becoming increasing possible that a rare snowfall event could occur on the floor of the San Joaquin Valley over the Thanksgiving holiday with SNOW possible in the forecast for about a 48 hour period, ThuPM ending SatPM.
With partially clearing skies on Friday night MIN Temps could drop well below the Freezing mark of 32° …with some AG Stations calibrated to drop as low as 27° as of this forecast issuance timing. This is also combined with chances of precip occurring at the same time, with high possibilities of snowfall accumulating within the San Joaquin Valley. Extremely hazardous driving conditions are highly probable from Thanksgiving Day forward thru at least Saturday.
