A quarter of inch to 1 inch of rain for the Valley, around 1 to 2
inches for the foothills, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the
mountains.

Above 7000 feet, 4 to 8 inches of snow accumulation, a foot or

...STRONG WINDS THIS WEEKEND WITH SNOW OVER THE PASSES BY LATE
SUNDAY...

A potent Pacific storm will move inland this weekend and bring
rain, mountain snow and gusty winds. The winds will begin Saturday
afternoon and continue through Sunday night with the strongest
winds during the day on Sunday. Precipitation will begin as rain,
even at the passes, as snow levels start high. Snow levels will
begin to fall early Sunday evening with snow over the passes
possible before midnight. Expect holiday weekend travel impacts
due to winds and snow over the passes. Some details follow:

* WINDS: Strong, gusty south to southwest winds are expected this
weekend. Winds will be breezy on Saturday and then increase
significantly overnight into Sunday afternoon. Gusts of 60 mph
or more are possible along portions of the 395 corridor and
Sierra ridge gusts will likely exceed 100 mph.

* PRECIPITATION: Light rain is likely over the mountains Saturday
night and will gradually spread southward through Sunday
evening. Snow levels will also gradually fall during this time
before crashing Sunday night as a strong cold front moves
through. The precipitation will end Monday morning behind the
front.

* SNOW LEVELS: Starting at near 9000 feet Saturday afternoon. They
will fall to 6000 feet for Lassen County, 6500 feet for the
Tahoe Basin, and 8000 feet for Mono County by late Sunday
evening. Snow levels will crash Sunday night and fall to near
the lower valley floors as the precipitation ends. Initial
estimates for accumulations over Sierra passes are 4 to 10
inches, up to 5 inches around Lake Tahoe, and light
accumulations generally less than 1 inch as low as 4500 feet. Be
prepared for major travel delays over Sierra passes due to slick
and snow-covered roads.
