Storm preparations are underway around the North State with snowfall expected Tuesday, possibly down to levels near 1,000 feet.

In Paradise, town officials say they’re ready for whatever Mother Nature may dish out.

Last week the town checked all of its plows, and workers have been ensuring that ditches are clear of all debris.

Residents say that despite some of the conveniences that come with inclement weather, they are waiting for snow with open arms.

In Redding, Caltrans crews have been stocking up on salt and cinders, and plan on having around 400 seasonal and non-seasonal workers on shift Tuesday.

In addition to cleaning the highways, drains and channels, crews have been monitoring burned areas for erosion, to prevent mudslides.

Tuesday’s snow levels will start in the mountains around 4,000 feet, and drop to 3,000 feet by late Tuesday afternoon. As the rain continues into Tuesday night snow levels will start to drop drastically, possibly down to 1,000 feet.
