* Snow from our ongoing system will be tapering off into the
  evening hours. Untreated roads may remain icy and snow covered
  through Monday morning. Use caution traveling, especially at
  night, as black ice is hard to see.

* Frigid temperatures will settle into the region behind this
  storm with highs remaining below freezing Monday and possibly
  Tuesday. Overnight lows tonight and Monday night could be the
  coldest some locations have seen in 5-10 years. Preparations
  should be made to protect vulnerable populations and pets from
  these very cold temperatures. It`s also a good idea to make sure
  that your pipes are protected from the cold.

* Increasing northeast to east winds will drive down wind chill
  values, with temperatures downright dangerous in exposed areas
  of the high Sierra. Wind chills may reach -20 to -35 degrees
  both tonight and again Monday night in the High Sierra. Exposed
  skin could rapidly see frostbite in these conditions. It may be
  a good idea to stay indoors, or make sure to have proper safety
  gear if you are recreating in the back country.
