Snow Gathers on California's Sierra Nevada Mountains

Northern California was subject to snow showers, scattered thunderstorms, and hail on Tuesday, February 21, with video showing snowfall in the California’s elevated areas.

This footage from the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab shows snow accumulating in slow motion in Soda Springs on Tuesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service said a “major” winter storm was expected to bring heavy snow from the west coast to the northeast through Thursday. The service said travel could be “very difficult to impossible” in parts of northern California from Tuesday to Saturday. Credit: UC Berkeley CSSL via Storyful
