Sacramento, CA — The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a winter weather advisory for the Mother Lode until 10 p.m. this evening.
The warning says two to five inches of snow is expected above 2,000 feet. By tonight the snow should transition to a mix of rain and snow.
Winds are also expected with gusts of up to 30 mph over higher terrain. This will create blowing and drifting snow.
Travel difficulties are likely. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility.
