  • 1 Local Government Hand Crew Type I
  • 1 Local Government Dispatcher

Glenn County:

  • 3 Local Government Type III Engines

Another series of storm systems will impact much of the state through Wednesday bringing strong winds, heavy rain and mountain snow. Snow levels are expected to be unusually low across the northern mountains, Sierra and adjacent foothills.

Gusty winds of 45 to 65 mph are forecast over much of the Sierra through Wednesday, spreading into Southern California.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento warned about difficult travel conditions in the mountains with near white out conditions at times.
