...More Wintry Weather Likely in Higher Elevations This
Weekend...

Another weak storm system will bring rain and snow to northeast
California, the Sierra, and western Nevada tonight into Sunday.
Snow levels start rather high tonight, 8000 to 9000 feet, but
fall to near 5500 to 6000 feet Sunday. Precipitation amounts will
be limited and the higher snow levels will limit snow
accumulations below 7000 feet. Along the Sierra Crest, isolated
spots could get more than 8 inches of snow, but the higher passes
through the Sierra can expect only 3 to 6 inches. Even this small
amount of snow could cause travel delays by Sunday morning.

At Lake Tahoe, accumulations up to a couple inches are possible.
In Mono County, accumulations should be confined to the mountains
west of Highway 395, and only 2 to 5 inches are expected above
7500 feet, with 4 to 8 inches along the Sierra Crest.

Winds will also increase late Saturday night into Sunday, with
gusts in the 35 to 40 mph in wind prone areas east of the Sierra
Crest. For most other areas, gusts should be no higher than 30
mph. These winds will also cause choppy conditions on Lake Tahoe.
