Weather ahead, but Thanksgiving should be dry

Rain and snow will return to the Sierra Nevada tonight and Wednesday, but Thanksgiving Day is expected to be dry.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento said a storm from the Gulf of Alaska will move in today, dropping snow as low as 6,500 feet later in the evening. Rain and snow showers will linger through Wednesday from Interstate 80 to the north, and snow levels could be lower.

Mountain drivers traveling the next two days should be prepared with chains.

Some showers may linger in the higher elevation Thanksgiving Day, but most lower-elevation areas should be dry. On Friday, there is a slight chance of showers in the mountains, but partly cloudy skies with highs in the low 50s are expected.
