  commute. The combination of snow loading on trees and gusty
  winds could bring down trees or tree branches.

  hour are expected tonight. This in combination with strong winds
  will result in occasional blizzard like conditions with
  visibility below a half mile near Weed (including I-5) and

  blizzard like conditions is expected to be between 9 PM and 1 AM
  PST tonight.
