Periods of light snow will begin tonight in the Sierra and continue through Sunday night. Storm total snow amounts over the weekend for the Tahoe basin above 7000 feet may be as much as 6 to 12 inches affecting travel over Interstate 80...Highway 50 and other mountain highways.

For areas north of Lake Tahoe...several inches are possible west of Highway 395 above 5500 feet affecting Yuba Pass and fredonyer Summit. Snow levels may drop to valley floors north of Susanville with light snow in the desert valleys of northeastern California and western Nevada.
