SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — More rain and snow are headed toward California after a dousing overnight.
A winter weather advisory was in effect for the northern Sierra until 11 a.m. Tuesday, with an additional one to three inches of snow expected. KCRA-TV reports that two school districts in El Dorado County canceled classes for the day.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, the storm was expected to bring more thunder and lightning. Lightning damaged at least two homes in the region on Monday. It also struck several planes, though they continued to operate normally.
Showers have also fallen in Southern California, where a January wildfire stripped bare the steep slopes of the San Gabriel Mountains above the foothill cities of Glendora and Azusa, northeast of Los Angeles. No problems have been reported in communities below wildfire burn areas so far.
