...Gusty winds, rain, and Sierra snow return Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning...

The next weather system will quickly move through the region
Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Be prepared for travel
restrictions due to gusty winds and delays in driving over the
Sierra passes.

* Winds...Gusts of 30 to 45 mph are possible Tuesday evening
  through late Wednesday morning. The strongest winds should occur
  early Wednesday morning with bumpy flights in and out of the
  region.

* Snow...Expect some light snow to begin in the Sierra Tuesday
  evening with a period of heavier snow late Tuesday night and
  early Wednesday morning. A few inches of snow is expected over
  the Sierra passes with light amounts sticking to roads around
  the Tahoe Basin and northeast California as low as 5500 feet.
  Little if any snow is expected to accumulate in Mono County.

* Additional Storms...After a fairly modest system Friday, a
  potentially much stronger system is on the horizon for later
  next weekend. This storm is expected to be rather warm with snow
  levels at least 7000 to 8000 feet during the heaviest
  precipitation. Strong winds, heavy high Sierra snowfall, and
  soaking rains are possible.
