Weather change on the way

Jim Grant / Tahoe Daily Tribune / Before going home to Sonoma, Mark and Heather Sowinski enjoy the view of Lake Tahoe on the last day of their belated honeymoon Wednesday. The day's pleasant weather is expected to be replaced today with rain and cooler temperatures

Don’t be surprised if you don’t see snow on your driveway this morning.

While some prognosticators called for it, the National Weather Service in Reno said Wednesday night that whatever precipitation blows into the area today will likely remain as rain.

The forecast calls for isolated showers and some thundershowers today through tonight. Snow levels shouldn’t creep down below 8,000 feet, said Tom Cylke, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Reno.

“It’s not a winter storm by any means. Nothing to accumulate and nothing to shovel off your driveway,” Cylke said.

Snow is expected today and tonight above 8,000 feet, with possibly up to 2 inches of accumulation. By Friday, the remnants of the low pressure system should move out of the area, and temperatures are expected to climb back up to the 60s by Sunday.

Highs today are expected to be in the mid-50s, with lows in the low 30s.
