CALIFORNIA, USA — It's another snow day for some Northern California schools as the Sierra gets walloped by a potent winter storm.
Extreme storm impacts continued into Monday evening and are expected into Tuesday for Northern California.
Heavy snow and gusty winds are battering the Sierra, and blizzard conditions above 3,000 feet have already prompted closures on major roadways.
Snow will continue dumping in the Sierra through the overnight hours and whiteout conditions will persist until Wednesday.
These schools in Northern California are canceling classes for yet another day Tuesday.
