The Sacramento region is set for another wet week, with Sierra snow expected to snarl Tahoe travel, weather experts say.
The region will likely see rain – and mountain snow – starting Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
NWS meteorologist Hannah Chandler-Cooley says the region will see scattered light showers on Monday. Rain will pick up Tuesday, she said.
“Rain will be a bit heavier (Tuesday), more like a typical winter rainy day, and snowy day for the mountains,” Chandler-Cooley said.
A stronger storm will move into the region on Wednesday and Thursday, causing 1 to 2 inches of rain in the Valley and 2 to 5 feet of snow in the Sierra, Chandler-Cooley said.
The amount of rain and snowfall may cause traffic and other travel-related issues in the area.
“With that storm we’re anticipating major travel impacts over the mountain,” Chandler-Cooley said. “We could see some flooding in the Sacramento area.”
