As of Sunday morning, chains are required on the busy highways around Tahoe, with chains required on highways 50, 80 and 88. Here are some current views of the roadways in that area:
Meanwhile near Lassen, highways 44 and 89 both have chain controls with a heavy does of snow hitting the area on Saturday. The Lassen Volcanic Highway is currently closed to traffic in the park. Here are some of the photos of that area:
Great news from the first storm of the season! The wet weather is expected to subside on Sunday, but it brought good winter vibes and some much needed water to NorCal. Safe driving!
