The Week Ahead:

It looks like a fairly dry week through Thursday outside of a coating to an inch of snow possible Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Watch for slippery roads and possible brief chain controls into Wednesday morning if we see a burst of snow that covers the roads.

Thursday night through Friday night we could see some rain all the way over Donner Pass. Roads should stay wet through Friday.


Saturday the rain could transition to snow through the day. That could bring rougher travel and chain controls along I-80 through the Sierra on Saturday.

We will continue to fine-tune the forecast all week.


We could see drier weather the 15th - 17th, and then a more active pattern could return around the 18th - 19th. Stay tuned...
