Update: Winter Storm Warning For The Sierra Nevada
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the northern Sierra Nevada above 5,500 feet, from 4 PM this afternoon through 4 PM Saturday.
The total snow accumulations will range from seven inches to two feet.
The heavy mountain snow will result in difficult mountain travel. If you are traveling into the mountains, carry chains, extra warm clothing, an extra flashlight, food and water. Be prepared for significant travel delays and reductions in visibility at times.
A Winter Storm Warning for snow means there will be snow covered roads and limited visibilities. Travel is not recommended while the Warning is in effect. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
