Homeless without access to health care keeps some on the streets

There are lots of reasons people are homeless, but one reason may be keeping some on the streets--the lack of access to health care.

Windy weather is in the forecast for Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. Secure outdoor furniture, holiday decorations, and other objects if you can. This wind comes with a cold front, that will bring a period of valley rain and Sierra snow showers Thursday night into Friday morning. There could be some slippery spots on the passes, and snow levels will likely dip to Lake Tahoe Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, the system will lift out of the region, and a quick warming trend is in the forecast for the weekend through next week. -Jeff
