Light winds ranging from 10-15 mph are expected. Gusts in some areas could be as strong as 30 mph.

Tahoe could be in store for a wetter and windier week starting Monday. The weather service currently forecast a 30 percent chance of precipitation Monday, with rain and snow possible in the Sierra.

More storms are possible as the week progresses.
