Travelers Warned About Wintry Weather Over the Sierra
TRUCKEE -- Chain requirements were in effect for a brief period over the summits of Highway 50 and Interstate 80 Monday afternoon. Those requirements were lifted in the evening as a relatively weak storm fell apart. A colder, wetter storm will impact the Sierra Wednesday night and Thursday. As much as 3 feet of snow may fall over the Sierra summits, according to the National Weather Service. Snow may fall as low as the 4,000-foot elevation at times.
