The Bay Area’s pretty well known for having excellent, temperate weather.
Sometimes it rains, or is overcast…
But most of the time, it’s pretty nice and sunny.
That could change this week.

According to the National Weather Service, we could see SNOW.
In the BAY AREA.
Think about that. Snow. Here. In the Bay.
But it might actually happen.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the Bay Area on Tuesday.
Specifically, for areas from 400ft above sea level and up.
So areas of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Mt. Hamilton, the North Bay…
And in some areas of San Francisco and the East Bay.
In fact, it’s already starting:
COOL! ❄️ Snow seen on Mount Hamilton this morning. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for elevations above 1000′ in the Bay Area from late this afternoon through Tuesday morning https://t.co/MEkZTnhVQM pic.twitter.com/d6infaU5rT

If you thought Traffic was bad in the rain…
Just imagine how bad it is when conditions are slick from ice or snow.
