Wet week, tricky travel in forecast

Another round of storms rolling in from the Pacific is expected to bring chances of showers today through next Wednesday to western Nevada County, with rain likely tonight and Sunday.

The storms also are expected to bring chances of snow to the Sierra Nevada above 4,000 feet for the same period, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento. Snow is forecast as likely tonight through Sunday night at Donner Pass on Interstate 80.

That means travel through the Sierra could be difficult over the weekend, and travelers are encouraged to bring tire chains, water, extra food, and warm clothing for emergencies.

Sunny conditions with a high in the low 60s will continue through today in the foothills, with highs dropping into the mid-50s to mid-40s as the storms pass through. Foothills lows are expected in the upper 30s tonight through Wednesday.
