We’ll let NOAA tell you about it:
Main change to the forecast today was to issue a Blizzard Warning for Mono County and the central Sierra. Strong winds Thursday through Thursday night are expected to combine with snowfall rates of 2-4 inches per hour. This will create dangerous, potentially life threatening conditions over the high Sierra. Extended travel delays are highly likely and road closures are possible. In addition, the Sierra Avalanche Center has issued an Avalanche Watch for Thursday morning through Saturday morning for increasing avalanche danger. Bottom line - I`ve lived in the Sierra for many years and I wouldn`t try to travel over Donner Summit or drive on highway 395 through Mono County during the heart of this storm. - NOAA Reno, NV today
