I have travelled I-5 a number of times in Dec, and will be again next week as we head South from Washington State. I would stick to I-5 this time of year vs the coast. Dick

I also would just stick to I5. I run it in the winter and just check weather and the cameras before heading up. Your up and down in just a few hours so its not that risky unless your heading up blind to the weather.

https://tripcheck.com/Pages/RCMap.asp Oregon highway cameras. You can get first hand up to date Oregon highway information. California has the same or similar highway camera set up. I always check before heading south in the winter.

Edit: Played with that site a bit and you can scroll down and see the CA cameras. And elevation is noted on the image.

We did the 299 last spring on our way back to Canada. I will not take that road again. It is pretty high in places and I would suspect snow there as well.
Like others are saying I5 is the best bet, it is never closed for long so just wait it out.

That's a little too far in the future to predict ,but in past 10 Years We only encountered Snow once ,that shut the I 5 for a few hours. We waited it out at Seven Feathers!
We are leaving on the 16th (depending on the weather)...it is changing a bit, now one day of just clouds...but snow predicted for the day we leave, and after 3.2" of rain here today we are prepared for anything...

I'd stick to 5. Chances of serious snow is minimum. 20 is much easier than 299
