Winter Weather Advisory Issued For The Sierra Nevada

Winter Weather Advisory Issued For The Sierra Nevada

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Sierra Nevada above 8,000 feet now through 11 PM Friday. Total snow accumulations of four to eight inches are expected above the 8,000 foot elevation. Winds may gust as high as thirty-five MPH. Plan on slippery road conditions. Additionally, due to an upper-level low pressure system developing over portions of central California, there is potential for slow moving thunderstorms with heavy rain over the mountain areas during today and tomorrow. The combination of locally heavy rainfall and rapid snowmelt over the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada will accelerate runoff into area streams and rivers over the next couple of days.
