A fast-moving, but relatively weak, winter storm will spread rain
and snow across northern California and western Nevada this
evening and Sunday. Snow levels will start around 5500-6000 feet
then fall late tonight to around 4500-5000 feet before rising
again Sunday. This is not a strong storm, but it could bring just
enough snow to the higher passes to cause travel impacts tonight
through Sunday morning. For the lower valleys of northeast
California and western Nevada, snow accumulations should be
minimal, but this could cause a few icy or snow covered patches
for Sunday morning.

Anyone traveling through the Sierra tonight or Sunday, or out and
about in the lower valleys Sunday morning, should be prepared for
changeable road conditions and be ready to adjust your driving
