Winter Storm Watches upgraded to Winter Storm Warnins this morning.
Warning is for 4-8 in at lake level 10-18 in above 7000. This is just for the first 24 hrs.
First storm of the season + Monday morning commute won't be pretty tomorrow. Plan on extra time. #kcrawx
Make sure you have chains with you if you are planning on Sierra travel over the next few days. Also, have the KCRA mobile app. #kcrawx
Sierra 7-Day Forecast

Good day to turn off your yard watering system. Good rain should take care of that tomorrow. #kcrawx
small flakes starting to fall already up here at the top of Tahoe Donner. Crap i'm not doen stacking wood yet.
It's snowing out the Window up here, barely but it's the first flakes of the season. Here's to another season of tracking them down! BA
Parts of the Valley will get one last dose of Sun before more clouds work into the area. Should help bump temps up a touch. #kcrawx
