More storms headed our way

More storm fronts are moving in off the Pacific Coast that could bring rain to western Nevada County foothills and snow at the higher elevations through Tuesday.

The first, warm storm was expected to hit late Thursday in the Sierra and move through the area today, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento. Winds are expected to be gusty, causing treacherous travel through Saturday.

The second front is expected to roll in Saturday that will bring snow levels down to 4,000 feet. The storms should leave another foot of snow above that elevation and bring a total of 1 to 1 1/2 inches of rain to the foothills through Saturday.

Lows will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s through Saturday, with highs in the upper 40s. Those highs will climb into the lower to mid-50s as skies clear Sunday and Monday.

Another warm storm could pass through Tuesday. The National Weather Service is predicting a 30 to 40 percent chance for precipitation late Monday night and Tuesday, before skies clear again next Wednesday and Thursday.
