The Eureka office of the National Weather Service has extended the winter weather advisory to 6 a.m. on Wednesday for interior areas of Humboldt County above 2,000 feet.

"Travel could become difficult at times over some mountain passes at Berry Summit on Highway 299, and at the Collier Tunnel on Highway 199. Chain restrictions may go into effect. Roads will likely become snow- covered and slippery," the advisory states.

The county reports that Horse Mountain has three inches of snow but "the road is open to the towers, and everyone is to carry chains."

Bald Hills Road, meanwhile, has 2 inches, the county reports,  noting that the road is clear and carrying chain is also required.


Enjoy the sun today because the forecast calls for rain and snow.

The Eureka office of the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for interior areas of Humboldt County starting at midnight tonight, with snow expected above 2,000 feet.

Running through 6 a.m. Tuesday, 2 to 7 inches of snow is forecast to fall, with "higher totals possible in remote backwoods areas," the advisory states, accompanied by "winds gusting as high as 45 mph."

"Travel could be very difficult to impossible," the winter weather advisory states. "The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute."

Meanwhile, coastal areas will see rainy days the rest of the week, including a possible thunderstorm Monday, with some breezy to windy conditions.
