A cold weather system moving into the Bay Area from the Gulf of Alaska is bringing frigid temperatures, rain, wind and the chance of snow above 2,000 feet this week, according to the National Weather Service.

This Tuesday morning is expected to start with temperatures up to 10 degrees lower than what they were on Monday and the lows on Tuesday and Wednesday should range between 30 and 40 degrees.

As the week progresses, people can expect strong winds, high surf along the coast and periods of moderate rain, with up to 2 inches of rain accumulating at lower elevations through Sunday, the Weather Service said.

Additionally, most of the rain is expected to fall between Friday and Saturday and the cold system could reduce snow levels on some peaks in the region, especially in the Diablo Range of the East Bay and Santa Lucia along the central coast.

The Weather Service issued a frost warning for Monday night and into Tuesday morning for North Bay and the coastal mountain ranges.

While the overall amount of rain is not expected to be much in the Bay Area, the Central Sierra Snow Laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley expects up to nine feet of snow as the system moves toward the mountains from Thursday to Sunday.

For its part, the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) said it is working with local, state and federal partners to ensure the state is prepared for impacts and ready to respond to communities in need.

Winter storms have the potential to cause heavy rain, flooding, snow, and other impacts, so it is important to be prepared for all weather outcomes and changing conditions.

Given this, the agency explained that we all have a role in preparing for the next disaster or emergency, and that time is now.

Thus, they remembered to register to receive local alerts on ready california, talk to your family about an emergency plan and know where family members will meet during an emergency; provide children with important phone numbers, and prepare a travel bag in case you need to leave home quickly, which should include essential items for each member of your family (food and water, medication, important documents, pet supplies , etc.).

Know multiple evacuation routes out of your neighborhood, and stay tuned for updates from local officials, and if they tell you to evacuate, don't wait!
