After a weekend of snow and rain, here are a few travel impacts to keep in mind.

Chains or snow tires are required on Highway 32 13 miles East of Forest Ranch.

Along Highway 36, chains are needed from 1 mi west of Belden to 9 mi west of the Junction of SR 89 (Plumas County).

You also need chains or snow tires 10 mi east of Quincy to 8 mi west of Blairsden.

Chains are required on all vehicles except 4-wheel-drive vehicles with snow tires on all 4 wheels from Blairsden to 1 mi east of Portola.

Please research chain control locations as Caltrans is currently working to update chain control descriptions for consistency with internet mapping, like Google maps & Mapquest.

If you're traveling, pack the car with a blanket, water and snacks just in case you get stuck.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
