Another Sierra Nevada Winter Storm Warning

Sponsored by:

A system moving across northern California today through late Sunday will bring more mountain snow to the Sierra Nevada, resulting in travel impacts this weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Sierra Nevada above 6,000 feet, from 2 PM this afternoon through 5 AM Monday.

Periods of heavy snow is expected. There will be significant reductions in visibility at times.

Total snow accumulations above the 6,000 foot elevation will range from half-a-foot to two feet.

Weekend mountain travel will likely be hampered by travel delays, road closures and chain controls.

Hikers and campers should expect gusty winds, blowing snow and dangerous wind chill temperatures over the high Sierra tonight through Sunday.

More mountain snowfall will be possible this coming week.

A Winter Storm Warning 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.
