Winter Storm Warning In Effect For The Sierra Nevada

The Winter Storm Warning that is currently in effect for the Sierra Nevada above 4,500 feet, will expire at 11 AM Monday.

The heaviest snow is expected on Sunday with the majority of accumulation for elevations above 4,500 to 5,500 feet. Lighter accumulations are possible down to 3,500 feet on Sunday and Monday mornings.

The total snow accumulations above the 5,000 foot elevation will range from three inches to two feet. The higher you go, the more the snow.

Travel will be very difficult with slick, snow covered roads, and possible road closures. Be prepared for winter driving conditions, significant travel delays, and chain controls.

Also be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times due to breezy and gusty winds. The winds will cause blowing and drifting snow, with the possibility of local whiteout conditions.

Dangerously cold wind chill temperatures will be a threat to hikers in the high country.
