Storm Leads to Slight Chance of Snow in San Fran
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A freezing storm system is moving across Northern California, offering the slight chance that San Francisco could see its first snow in 35 years.
The National Weather Service says the low-pressure system brought heavy rains and strong winds overnight and will be followed by a drop in temperatures and more precipitation Friday night and
The storm created the prospect of San Francisco getting a dusting of snow, but the chances of a white winter in the city are getting slimmer. Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin says there's a 10 percent chance of flurries in the city.
The storm already has dumped more than 2 feet of snow in the Sierra Nevada. Forecasters say more than 3 feet could fall in the highest elevations by the end of the weekend.
