    🌬 When it’s windy

    Fallen trees are a common kind of storm debris in Sacramento, especially in high wind conditions.|Photo by SACtoday staff
    With three storms on the horizon in the Sacramento area, winds are expected to pick up to 45 miles per hour in the northern Sacramento Valley.

    The National Weather Service predicts heavy snow in the mountainous regions, with windy and wet conditions for the rest of the Sacramento area.

    Here are some tips to keep in mind as the winds pick up this week:
    • Monitor the local forecast at the National Weather Service’s website.
    • Keep an eye out for sagging trees or power lines + avoid crossing paths with them.
    • Avoid driving at all, but if you must, never drive over downed power lines.
    • Bring pets and outdoor furniture or decor inside.
    • Stay indoors if possible, and dress warmly to account for windchill if outside.
    • Keep sidewalks and curbsides clear for emergency and service vehicles.
    • Call 911 only for emergencies. Downed trees and street flooding should be reported to 311.
    Stay safe, Sacramento.

    I still have yet to fix my window screens, and honestly I might just wait this one out until Sacramento weather decides to calm down (there’s currently a roof tile lodged in one of them from over a week ago). 🙃
