...Snow in the Sierra this morning with Storms Next Week...

* The current storm will be wrapping up early this morning with
  snow chances ending between 7 and 9 am and winds shifting to the
  northwest and remaining breezy, but decreasing, through the day.
  If you are traveling early this morning, there are chain
  controls in effect in the Sierra and wind restrictions for high
  profile vehicles in western Nevada. Be sure to check with
  CalTrans and NDOT for the latest road conditions.

* After a relatively quiet day on Sunday, an active pattern will
  resume on Monday with periods of snow and gusty winds through
  Wednesday and possibly Thursday. While we are not anticipating
  any strong storms, these storms will be on the colder side,
  which could bring snow to valley floors. There has been a
  downward trend in liquid/snow totals, especially east of the
  Sierra crest. A high boom or bust potential exists with the
  latest model snowfall projections showing variable solutions
  with anywhere between several inches to up to 18 inches
  possible for the Sierra crest. In any case, travel disruptions
  should be expected across the Sierra and possibly at times into
  Western Nevada Monday through Wednesday.
