Wet weather may make a comeback

Wet weather is expected to return to the Sierra after 10 a.m. today and last through the weekend, but the National Weather Service is not sure about the strength of the new set of winter storms.

After a week of almost balmy conditions, foothills residents are expected to see rain this afternoon and tonight. Snow is predicted for Truckee residents and others at the higher elevations tonight.

A series of storms are expected across Northern California through the weekend that do not appear now to include heavy rain and snow. The National Weather Service in Sacramento said the timing of the storms could change as they begin to roll toward the foothills.

Though the timing is uncertain, the weather service is advising mountain travelers to carry snow chains, warm clothing, water and a flashlight through next Monday.

Nevada County foothill highs will be in the low 50s today and Wednesday, dipping into the high to mid-40s through Monday. Lows are predicted to be in the mid-30s through the same period.

Truckee at 6,000 feet is expected to see intermittent snow tonight through Sunday, with highs in the 40s and lows in the lower 30s all week.
