Back-to-back storms poised to slam California’s Sierra Nevada Thursday through Sunday could bring 4 to 6 feet of fresh snow in the higher elevations of the Tahoe Basin, the National Weather Service said. The onslaught of snow is expected to create dangerous driving conditions, especially on Saturday.
“Travel is highly discouraged,” said Chelsea Peters, a forecaster with the weather service’s Sacramento office. “It’s going to be highly unpleasant. Almost certainly there will be road closures.”
