SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Sierra will likely see additional snow beginning late Monday and into Tuesday this week.

The storm is expected to bring decent rain into the Sacramento Valley and foothills with at least a foot of snow in the Sierra.

While areas of the Southern Sierra will receive a foot of snow from this storm, the snow totals will be less impressive in the Lake Tahoe region where less than a foot will accumulate. Donner Pass will likely receive between four and eight inches of snow.

Due to the subtropical origin of some of the precipitation, snow levels will fluctuate between 6,000 and 8,000 feet.

FOX40’s weather team says gusty winds are also expected with likely advisories to come ahead of the weather.

A longer patch of dry weather is expected follow this week’s storm.
