No snow expected this week between Grass Valley and Reno, National Weather Service says

The weather should cause little trouble this week as motorists travel between here and Reno on Interstate 80, as no snow is expected to fall below 10,000 feet, the National Weather Service said.

Showers are expected today, followed on Thanksgiving and Friday by more rain chances. However, no snow currently is forecast for this week, said Cory Mueller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

"We won't really be seeing any snow accumulation," he added. "It mainly should be just wet roads."

Grass Valley has a 70 percent chance of rain today, dipping to 30 percent tonight. Truckee's rain chances are lower: 40 percent today and 20 percent tonight, forecasts show.

"Then it looks like we kind of dry out for the rest of the week," Mueller said.

Rain chances return Thanksgiving for Grass Valley and Friday for Truckee, though Mueller said that system appears weaker than today's.
