RENO, Nev. (AP) — Another storm is bringing more snow and traffic delays to the Sierra Nevada.
Tire chains are required on all vehicles except four-wheel drives with snow tires on Interstate 80 over Donner Summit and State Route 88 over Carson Pass.
Chains or snow tires are required on other mountain highways in the Reno-Tahoe area.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 10 p.m. Friday around Lake Tahoe, where 4 to 8 inches of snow was expected below 7,000 feet elevation and up to 18 inches of snow was forecast along the Sierra crest.
As of mid-morning, Mammoth Lakes, Calif., reported 4 inches of new snow and Diamond Peak ski area in Incline Village received 2 inches of new snow.
The snowfall is a welcome addition to a skimpy Sierra snowpack.
