A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the Southern Sierra Nevada above 6,000 feet from late Saturday night through Monday morning. A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow accumulations that may impact travel. This late season winter-like storm will produce slick, snow covered roads above 6,000 feet with the possibility of travel delays and road closures. Gusty winds, blowing and drifting snow and dangerously cold wind chill temperatures will threaten hikers over the high Sierra.
