Monday - Thursday:
We will see a drier pattern Monday through Thursday with no weather-related travel impacts expected at this time.
A weak system moves through Friday and could bring a few inches of snow to the northern Sierra. Snow levels look to be around 5000 ft. We could see chain controls during the day from around Kingvale to Truckee. Then clearing out Friday night. We'll continue to watch the trends all week.
Saturday looks dry. Then Sunday into Sunday night a slightly wetter system could bring several inches of new snow to the northern Sierra. We could see chain controls and slow travel Sunday into Sunday night. More details as we get closer.
We could see a drier pattern again next week from the 6th-9th. Then we could possibly see a slightly more active pattern starting around the 10th-11th. We'll continue to watch the trends.
