RENO — Wintry weather is returning to Northern Nevada on the heels of record rain across parts of the region.

A winter storm warning is in effect for the Lake Tahoe area from 2 p.m. Thursday through 5 a.m. Saturday.

As much 2 feet of snow is possible at lake level by the time the latest storm makes its way through the region, with as much as 4 feet in the upper elevations.

The Sierra Avalanche Center has issued an avalanche watch for Tahoe’s backcountry through 7 a.m. Saturday.

The National Weather Service says more than a foot of snow fell at ski resorts around the lake on Wednesday.
