Update: Snow In The Mountains Tonight

Sponsored by:

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Sierra Nevada above 5,000 feet from now until 4 PM Thursday.

Total snow accumulations will range from one to fifteen inches above the 4,500 foot elevation. The higher you go, the more the snow.

Wind gusts as high as forty-five mph are likely on exposed ridgetops and along the crest.

With the expected snow, plan on difficult travel conditions. Be prepared for snow covered roads and reduced visibilities at times. Use caution while driving.

Weather conditions will be dangerous for hikers and campers, especially along the Pacific Crest Trail.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties.
