A winter-like storm making a beeline for Lake Tahoe is expected to drop a few inches of snow in some higher elevation locations beginning Sunday and continuing into Monday, according to the National Weather Service. In northeast California, 4 to 8 inches of snow is possible above 6,500 feet, with a couple inches possible down to 5,500 feet. According to Unofficial Networks, parts of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho could see over a foot of snowfall by Wednesday morning. While most of the lower valleys of western Nevada are not expected to experience freezing early morning temperatures through Monday, lows in the coldest valleys will fall into the mid-30s Monday morning.

"With the June sun angle, snow will melt off rapidly with impacts to mountain passes likely to be short-lived or limited to the overnight hours", according to the weather statement. "However, even a short burst of accumulating snow can cause a significant travel hazard, so slow down if you end up in any snow showers".
