Storm systems stacking up

A series of storm systems that started Wednesday night will bring rain and snow to Nevada County through the middle of next week.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento at noon said another weak system will start coming through tonight that will drop snow levels to 2,500 feet, but no more than a couple of inches are expected in western Nevada County.

Snow levels will rise to 3,000 feet and above by Friday morning. A stronger front will pass through Friday night and Saturday with fairly breezy winds and a potential for heavier precipitation.

Donner Pass ski resorts are expecting more snow through Saturday night with a break Sunday. Weekend skiers going to Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch or the Boreal Mountain Playground will find temperatures in the high 20s to low 40s.

Partly cloudy skies will prevail across the county Sunday, but another weak system will be right behind it on Monday. Yet another stronger system is expected by the middle of next week.

Temperatures are expected to drop back down into the mid-40s to low 50s during the next seven days in the foothills, with lows in the high 30s at night.
