Expected Snowfall Upcountry

Expected Snowfall Upcountry 

A cold weather front from the Gulf of Alaska will bring periods of moderate snowfall to the Sierra Nevada today through early Wednesday. The national weather service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Sierra Nevada above 4,000 feet now through 11 AM Wednesday.

Total snow accumulations ranging from a trace to a 1 & ½ feet are expected above the 4,000 foot elevation. The higher you go, the more the snow. The heaviest snowfall is expected this afternoon through tonight for elevations above 4,000 feet, with lighter accumulations possible down to 2,500 – 3,000 feet by early Wednesday morning. Winds will gust from thirty to fifty MPH at times over the higher Sierra Nevada.

If travel is necessary, carry chains and expect snow covered roads, travel delays and possible road closures. Hikers and campers should be prepared for wintry weather and wind chill temperatures in the single digits and teens. Power outages may also occur.
