Update: Snow Is Forecast For The Northern Sierra Nevada
A quick moving winter storm will bring widespread snow to the Northern Sierra Nevada, tonight through Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Northern Sierra Nevada above 5,000 feet, from 10 PM tonight to 10 AM Saturday.
The snow may become heavy for a time from late tonight into early Saturday morning.
The majority of the snow accumulation is expected above the 5,000 foot elevation, but the snow levels will be falling on Saturday morning with some possible light accumulation down to the 3,500 foot elevation.
The total snow accumulations above 5,000 feet will range from three to eleven inches.
If you have mountain travel plans during the time of the advisory be prepared for chain controls and winter driving conditions. Plan on slippery road conditions.
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.
