3 storms Sierra bound; Thanksgiving Day best for travel
RENO, Nev. (AP) — A trio of storms on their way into the Sierra could make for hazardous travel into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, with several inches of snow expected around Lake Tahoe and a mix of snow and mostly rain in the Reno area.
The first of the back-to-back-to-back storms should arrive Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. As much 8 inches of snow is possible in the mountains above Lake Tahoe and up to 5 inches at lake level by Wednesday.
Forecasters say Thanksgiving Day itself may be the best day for travel with sunny skies and mild conditions.
The second storm is expected to move into the Sierra late Friday, and another one is possible as a colder system arrives on Sunday.
