* California: If you haven’t noticed, the weather is a little wet and cold. If you are in an area or traveling to an area that is susceptible to snow, keep up with local forecasts. There is the potential for extreme winter weather in many parts of California. * Washington, DC: President Trump spun everybody’s head on the left and the right in a gathering to discuss actions in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. He appeared to push away NRA support and pushed Republicans to work with Democrats on ideas such as raising the age to buy rifles, expand background checks and that a concealed carry bill would not pass if attached to a bill to incentivize states to enter data into the national background checks database. * Russia: President Putin is announcing new nuclear arms that the Russian President says are “immune to enemy intercept.” Included in the arsenal is a nuclear-powered cruise missile with unlimited range and high speed that is claimed to be able to surpass missile defense systems. President Putin also described an underwater nuclear-powered drone capable of hitting aircraft carriers or coastal facilities. (Ed) Looks like the Russians are putting that uranium from the Uranium 1 deal to use… -Warnings/ Advisories (NOAA) * Winter Weather Advisory: Coastal Del Norte; Mendocino Coast; Northern Humboldt Coast, Southeastern Mendocino Interior, Surprise Valley California, Modoc County; Northeast Siskiyou and Northwest Modoc Counties, Western Siskiyou County, Central Siskiyou County, North Central and Southeast Siskiyou County, Santa Barbara County Mountains, * Winter Storm Warning: Del Norte Interior; Northern Humboldt Interior; Southern Humboldt Interior; Southwestern Humboldt, Northern Trinity; Southern Trinity, Northeastern Mendocino Interior; Northwestern Mendocino Interior, Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon; Tulare County Mountains, Burney Basin, Eastern Shasta County; Clear Lake, Southern Lake County; Motherlode; Mountains Southwestern Shasta County to Northern Lake County; Northeast Foothills, Sacramento Valley; Shasta Lake Area, Northern Shasta County; West Slope Northern Sierra Nevada; Western Plumas County, Lassen Park, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties, Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Mono, Western Siskiyou County, South Central Siskiyou County, North Central and Southeast Siskiyou County, Eastern Sierra Slopes of Inyo County, White Mountains of Inyo County, Ventura County Mountains, Los Angeles County Mountains excluding the Santa Monica Range, * Avalanche Warning: Greater Lake Tahoe Area, * Blizzard Warning: Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Mono, * Flash Flood Watch: Santa Barbara County Mountains; Santa Barbara County South Coast; Santa Ynez Valley; Ventura County Coast; Ventura County Interior Valleys; Ventura County Mountains, Los Angeles County Mountains excluding the Santa Monica Range; Los Angeles County San Fernando Valley, * Wind Advisory: San Luis Obispo County Central Coast; Santa Barbara County Central Coast; Santa Ynez Valley, Cuyama Valley; San Luis Obispo County Interior Valleys, San Luis Obispo County Mountains, Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore; East Bay Interior Valleys; North Bay Interior Valleys; North Bay Mountains; San Francisco; San Francisco Bay Shoreline; San Francisco Peninsula Coast, Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore; East Bay Interior Valleys; North Bay Interior Valleys; North Bay Mountains; San Francisco; San Francisco Bay Shoreline; San Francisco Peninsula Coast, Central Sacramento Valley; Northern Sacramento Valley, Carquinez Strait and Delta; Northern San Joaquin Valley; Southern Sacramento Valley -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0639hrs.
