NOAA has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for California’s Sierra Nevada mountains on Sunday and Monday.
Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and Mammoth are all forecast to se 6-12″ of snowfall above 7,000′.
Snow levels will start high around 9,000′ on Sunday before crashing down as low as 5,000′ on Monday.
Snow amounts Sunday night-Monday are projected to range from 6-12 inches above 7000 feet in the Sierra, but with the delay in arrival of colder air, amounts down to lake level around Tahoe look to be limited to 3 inches or less. Higher foothills in far western NV and northeast CA (5500+ feet) could also receive an inch or two of snow. - NOAA Sacramento, CA today
