Update: Sierra Nevada Winter Weather Advisory Issued

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Sierra Nevada for snow above 10,500 feet, now through 11 PM this evening.

Total snow accumulation will range from two to four inches above 10,500 feet. Isolated locations could see as much as eight inches of snow. A dusting of snow is possible just below 10,000 feet. This may affect Highway 120 Tioga Pass in Yosemite National Park.

The main impact will be rapidly changing weather conditions for hikers in the Sierra Nevada above 10,500 feet Hikers should prepare for winter like conditions. Both the John Muir Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail will be affected.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered high elevation roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
