Winter Returning to the Sierra this Week

A late-season storm could drop up to 18 inches of snow in places.

Just when you thought spring had arrived…a late-season snowstorm is expected to hit the Sierra on Wednesday, dropping a predicted foot of powder on the Sierra ski resorts and up to 18 inches at Lassen Volcanic National Park. A cold snap will accompany the snow, so skiers should be ready for temperatures in the 20s.
