LASSEN VOLCANIC NATIONAL PARK, Calif. - Lassen Volcanic National Park is seeing signs of spring, but lots of deep snow is still underfoot.

This winter's deeper than average snowpack is quickly disappearing from the Manzanita Lake area while the southwest area remains blanketed in 13 feet or more of snow.

Park employees say there is still plenty to see during National Park Week which kicks off on Saturday.

The entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park and all other national park service sites is free on Saturday, Apr. 20, 2019.

This week visitors can hike a mostly snow-free loop around Manzanita or Reflection Lakes or enjoy snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
