Storm causes Sierra travel warning

Motorists should pay caution today as winds and rainstorms whip the Sierra.

Wind gusts up to 30 mph are predicted in the foothills of western Nevada County with periodic rain into tonight, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

Gusts up to 40 to 55 mph are possible at the higher elevations but no snow is expected below 8,000 feet from the relatively warm storm.

Highs are expected to be in the high 50s today and again Saturday, when skies are predicted to clear. Lows will be in the low 40s overnight and Saturday night.

Temperatures are expected to climb back into the upper 60s Sunday and then into the 70s Monday through Wednesday before dipping into the high 60s again Thursday.

Lows are predicted in the mid-40s with clear skies from Sunday night through Thursday.
