Although the spring equinox started today, the forecast in the Tahoe Basin is calling for more winter-like weather.
South Shore experienced rain showers, mixed with light flurries, throughout the morning and early afternoon Tuesday, March 20. Cloudy skies and a 70 percent change of rain remain in the forecast for Tuesday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
A winter storm warning for the Lake Tahoe region will begin 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, and stay in effect until 5 a.m. Friday morning.
Caltrans cautions drivers to reduce speed on roads, as precipitation continues in the region Tuesday afternoon.
#TrafficAlert Wet weather starting to move into NorCal with showers in the Valley and snow flurries in the mountains. Wet roadways = slippery roadways so reduce your speed, turn on headlights and wipers, take it slow and arrive safely at your destination. pic.twitter.com/bNrQjwFqaN
