...Snow over Sierra passes this Memorial Day Weekend...

A relatively cold system is expected to bring down snow levels
below pass levels Sunday and Sunday night. Several inches of
snowfall will be possible Sunday into early Monday, with snow
levels expected to drop to around 6000 to 6500 feet. Thus, mountain
travel impacts will be likely during the middle of the holiday
weekend. With 6 to 12 inches of snowfall expected on Sunday and
Sunday night, slick roads and travel difficulties will be likely
with chain controls possible. If traveling through the Sierra
Cascade range this weekend, especially Sunday or Sunday night,
carry tire chains and prepare for winter like conditions despite
the late spring calendar date.
