Update: Winter Weather Advisory For The Sierra Nevada
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Sierra Nevada above 4,500 feet, until 10 PM tonight.
Total snow accumulations above the 5,000 elevation, will range from two to 10 inches.
The bulk of the snow is expected from the early afternoon through early evening hours.
Winds could gust up to fifty mph over the higher terrain at times.
Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times. Plan on slippery and hazardous road conditions. Slow down and use caution while traveling. If travel is necessary, carry chains and expect travel delays. There is the potential for road closures above 5,000 feet.
A Winter Weather Advisory means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
