The weather is about to take a turn for the worse, just in time for the Thanksgiving getaway. What you’ll get, will depend on where you are, or where you’ll be heading. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and a wind advisory in Lake County. The storm warning is up from 10:00 Tuesday morning until 4:00 on Wednesday afternoon for locations above 2,000 feet. The wind advisory is out from 6:00 Tuesday evening until 6:00 on Wednesday morning. It will be rainy in lower areas but places in the county’s mountain areas might have snow of 5 to 10 inches or more. Mendocino County has a high wind warning from 1:00 on Tuesday afternoon until 4:00 Wednesday morning, with some gusts topping 60 miles an hour, both in coastal areas and on ridges and mountain passes. Winds could lead to power outages and tough driving, especially for high profile vehicles. Meanwhile, heavy rain is forecast toward the south toward Sonoma County and beyond. There could be 40-foot waves out at sea and two feet of snow if you’re heading to the Sierra Nevada north and west. Overall, it looks like a messy couple days ahead across Northern California, right in the middle of one of the busiest travel times of the year.

A man from Covelo is facing several serious charges after a chase that made its way through parts of Ukiah over the weekend. Sheriff’s deputies say 19-year-old Georgie Hoaglin-Britton sped away after deputies tried to pull him over early Saturday. He eventually crashed into a tree and a mailbox and bailed, even jumping onto a roof of a nearby house before deputies, CHP, and Ukiah Police officers were able to take him in. He was taken to the hospital to be checked out, then released and booked into jail. He is charged with multiple felonies, including evading, hit and run, driving under the influence of drugs, and violation of probation, among others.
