Traveling North on HWY 101 in CA during January

The other CA coast topic has me thinking about our future plan that we might move up to travel north from the Pasadena area to as far as we can go without worrying about the weather in January.

The plan was to attend the 2022 Tournament of Roses Parade. With all the cancellations of our spring plans and probable cancellation of our summer plans I am tempted to plan heading to CA in December and then go north. We will take the highway and then do day trips to the coast. We love the coast and have flown out several times for vacations.

In vacations to the other coast we have driven as far north as Fort Bragg, not that one, the other one. I would like to visit Mendocino, but not sure about the weather. From the Mendocino.com website about weather:

WINTER is crisp, with an occasional storm. It's amazing to be here after a good storm blows through; the sun shines, the birds sing and the ocean dances for you!
I'm slow, define a good storm. We have Nor' Easters and Hurricanes.

Just bring your raincoat, hat and boots and you can enjoy the stormy weather!

That time of the year, you can travel all the way up 101 to the end of Washington with no issues. Just have to be prepared for winter storms with lots of wind and rain - wind can be excessive - 50 MPH+, coming off he ocean. If you plan on coming across the Cascades to central Oregon - different story as winter truly sets in there with snow and below freezing temps. Just have good rainwear and you'll be good to go.

Depending on just how much rain falls, Hwy 101 often has large mudslides that can close the hiway for a few days and more.

The mudslides are on Pacific Coast Hwy, Hwy 1, not 101.

LOL, Sounds like my kind of trip - cold, wet, and miserable!
