...MORE UNSETTLED WINTER WEATHER ON THE WAY...

Several more inches of snow are possible in the eastern Sierra
early this evening. Otherwise, showers will be on the decrease
tonight. Travel will remain hazardous this evening along Highway
395 through Mono County with patchy icy spots possible for Tahoe
and western Nevada locations overnight and during the Thursday
morning commute.

A stronger storm is forecast to arrive Friday afternoon and
continue over the weekend. This storm will bring another round of
heavy wet snow to the high Sierra and rain for the lower
elevations. As snow levels fall late Saturday afternoon into
Sunday, some snow accumulation is possible for northeast
California and foothill locations as well. If you have plans to
travel through the Sierra this weekend, make sure to watch the
weather forecast closely and be prepared for treacherous travel
across the Sierra.
