The Alaska cold front that is threatening to bring snow to San Jose for the first time since 1976 is making its way toward the South Bay, according to the National Weather Service.

Winds ahead of the storm were so gusty this morning that by 8 a.m. about 10,000 customers were without power, according to a PG&E spokeswoman. By 8:45, PG&E had restored power to more than half of those customers.

The cold front is expected to blanket hills and mountain tops with snow, dropping as much as eight inches at higher elevations. Snow levels could drop as low as 100 feet.
