North California get a White Christmas after snowfall

 


A major Christmas storm caused whiteout conditions and closed key highways in the mountains of northern California and Nevada, with forecasters warning that travel in the Sierra Nevada could be difficult for several days.

Rainstorms also continued to hit parts of southern California. The conditions were difficult but welcome developments in a parched state where the Sierra snowpack had been at dangerously low levels after weeks of dry weather.



The state department of water resources reported on Christmas Eve that the snowpack was between 114% and 137% of normal across the Sierra range, with more snow expected.
