You know the big man in the red suit can't be far away. We awoke this morning to a light dusting of snow at our new place in Cutten. Thought LoCo readers might enjoy a few pictures without needing to go out in the cold and snap their own. NWS says to expect near record lows this weekend and a hard freeze tonight. Bring in the dogs!
KHUM spoke with the National Weather Service's Ryan Aylward, who said the wind turned.
"We have an upper low set up off the coast south of San Francisco, and that switched our winds around to out of the east. And there are multiple fires now in the Sierras, and then additionally there are fires nearby in our area up in northeast Humboldt county and southwest Siskiyou county... all that smoke is now drifting our way and it's created some really hazy conditions out there."
This means 1) you can finally employ your understanding of the coriolis effect and 2) get to a beach by sunset tonight.

National Weather Service's Bob Ruehl can't stress it enough: stay home if you can.
If you're expecting an unceasing torrent of wind and rain, there actually will be a few dull moments.
Ruehl adds that this isn't an exceptional storm for this time of year. Regardless, things might get really interesting right around early Sunday morning as the Eel is expected to crest over flood stage.
