Winter Weather Advisory For The Sierra Nevada
A weather system continues to bring snow showers to the mountains of Northern California. The snow levels have risen to above 5,500 feet.
The National Weather Service has extended the Winter Weather Advisory for the western slopes of the Northern Sierra Nevada above 5,500 feet, until 1 PM this afternoon (Tuesday).
Additional snow accumulations above the 5,500 foot elevation, will range from two to six inches. The higher you go, the more the snow.
If you`re planning travel over the mountains, expect slippery road conditions and stay in touch with the latest forecasts.
A Winter Weather Advisory means periods of wet snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
