Less than one week after a shimmering layer of powder blanketed peaks across the Bay Area, snow once again coated the higher elevations across the region early Sunday.
White and fluffy snowflakes could be seen piling up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, on Mt. Tamalpais in the North Bay, across the East Bay hills and on peaks sitting east of San Jose, among other locations higher in elevation.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory through 10 a.m. Sunday for hills and mountains above 1,500 feet across the Bay Area.
Locations in the North Bay mountains, Santa Cruz Mountains and East Bay hills could welcome anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of fresh snowfall, according to the weather service. Spots soaring above 2,000 feet could pick up more than 4 inches of powder.
The weather service warned that the snow could make for treacherous driving conditions on a host of roadways that snake through the region’s hills and mountains, including Highway 17, Highway 9 and Highway 35 in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Highway 29 in the North Bay and Highway 130 leading to and from Mt. Hamilton in the South Bay.
