...Weak, quick moving system to bring light snow and gusty winds
to the Sierra...

* A weak system is expected to push through northeast California
  Thursday night into Friday. Southwest winds will begin to
  increase Thursday afternoon in the higher terrain, peaking early
  Friday morning. Ridgetop gusts of 70 to 100 mph could result in
  some aviation and mountain recreation disruptions. Winds will
  begin to diminish Friday afternoon.

* Light snow showers will move into the Sierra on Friday. While
  accumulations are expected to be minimal, we may see up to 2
  inches along the crest and a dusting down into the Tahoe Basin.
  Even light accumulations on the roadway can create slick and
  hazardous conditions. Download Caltran`s Quickmap app on your
  smart phone to get the latest roadway conditions before heading
  over the passes on Friday.

* A second, stronger system is still expected to move into the
  Sierra Saturday night through Sunday. This winter storm will
  bring more widespread snow and wind impacts to northeast
  California, so stay tuned to the latest forecast.
