A chance for rain, strong winds and possible snow has the power company preparing for possible power outages.
PG&E Spokeswoman Katie Allen says 13% of outages are caused by vegetation.
The company has tree crews working year-round to help minimize tree-related outages during a big storm.
This morning crews trimmed a tree along South H Street in Southeast Bakersfield.
"We hopefully utilize those techniques to reduce the hazards in certain areas and move forward," said Allen.
If customers experience a power outage, they should call PG&E's outage information line at 1-800-PGE-5002 to report the outage.
If you do lose power PG&E has some tips on how to prepare:
-Have flashlights ready.
-Keep your thermostat set at 68 F during the day, and 55 at night.
-Close your drapes, blinds and shades at night to help retain heat.
