... Strong winds Sunday with snow in the Sierra by late Sunday
into Monday...

A potent Pacific storm will move inland this weekend and bring
Rain, Mountain snow and gusty winds. Travel impacts are likely
Sunday into Monday. Some details follow:

* winds: strong, gusty south to southwest winds are expected this
weekend. Winds will be breezy on Saturday, with periods of
strong winds early Sunday morning through Sunday evening. 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 northeast California
Sunday morning, and will gradually increase as it spreads
southward. The heaviest precipitation is expected late Sunday
afternoon through Sunday night, continuing into Monday morning
south of Highway 50.

* Snow levels: starting above 9000 feet Sunday morning, then
falling to near 7000 feet by early Sunday evening in northeast
California, and 7500 to 8500 feet for the Sierra. Snow levels
will then fall quickly behind a cold front late Sunday night,
possibly as low as 4500-5500 feet.

light accumulations generally less than 2 inches down to 5500
feet. Be prepared for major travel delays in the Sierra Sunday
night into Monday morning due to slick and snow-covered roads.
