Storms will bring snow to 3,000 feet

The first of two storms from the Pacific Ocean will bring rain to western Nevada County Friday and snow to the higher elevations with brisk winds.

The second system will pass through Saturday bringing snow levels down to 3,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento. Both storms could bring another foot of snow to the higher elevations, which could make travel treacherous.

Temperatures will be in the low 50s Friday, dipping to 40 tonight. As the second system moves in, temperatures will fall into the high 40s Saturday and the mid-30s Saturday night.

Sunday should be sunny with highs in the mid-50s. Clouds will come back Monday and bring a chance for more precipitation through Wednesday afternoon.
