Northern California faces a blizzard warning from late Wednesday until 1 p.m. Friday, with 10 to 20 inches of snow possible in communities above 6,000 feet, and as much as two to three feet of snow in northern Sierra communities.

Wind gusts could exceed 80 mph in some areas, the Los Angeles Times reported. More than seven-and-a-half inches of rain is also expected in the Sierra Nevada, and the Bay Area could see more than three inches of rain.

The National Weather Service office in Sacramento posted a warning to its Facebook page, alerting residents about the potential high winds, power outages, and flooding, and also advising them to clean gutters, secure loose objects, and have emergency supplies ready.

"This storm still looks like it could be the strongest storm we’ve seen in several years," one post said.

 


Tropical air and moisture is coming to the west coast from Hawaii on an atmospheric river known as the "Pineapple Express," USA Today reported.

Twitter users had mixed reactions to the California blizzard warning.
