Winter Weather Advisory For The Sierra Nevada

Winter Weather Advisory For The Sierra Nevada

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Sierra Nevada through this evening. An unseasonably cool weather system will bring early season snow to the Sierra Nevada today into early tonight. Snow levels are expected to range from the 6,000 to 7,000 foot elevation with most of the snow accumulations above 7000 feet. Up to eight inches is possible over Carson Pass. Motorists traveling into these areas today and early tonight should be prepared for slick roads. Slick roads bring spin-outs and longer travel times. A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for slick roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
