Icy Weather Today and Rain this Weekend

January 6, 2017

Last night nearly set a record low for the day, reaching a chilly 29F. Sub-freezing temperatures mean ice - remember to drive a little slower than normal and watch for icy patches. You can read more about winter driving here. Be careful walking around campus too, as ice on walkways can surprise you. 

This weekend we can expect some warmer temperatures, but there will be heavy rain. From the Eureka National Weather Service: 

"Heavy rain is expected late Saturday into Sunday with 2 to 4 inches of wide spread rain accumulation.

Area creeks, streams, and rivers will see significant rises Saturday night through Sunday. The heavy rain will also cause water and debris to wash onto roadways.

Remember, if you encounter a flooded road, turn around, do not drown. Following the first storms system, a secondary and more potent storm system is forecast to impact Del Norte, Humboldt, and Trinity counties for the start of the work week.

Stay tuned to weather.gov/eka for the latest forecast updates."
