Bitter cold is moving into the Sierra Nevada on the heels of a storm that dropped over 7 feet of snow on the mountains around Lake Tahoe.

Wednesday night’s lows are forecast to dip to between 3 degrees and negative 7 at Tahoe.

The cold follows a four-day winter storm that dumped more than 7 feet of snow at some area resorts. The heavy snow and blizzard conditions caused school cancellations Monday and Tuesday in the Tahoe Basin.

More snow is in the forecast for this coming weekend, although the National Weather Service in Reno says snow totals will be much smaller than the numbers from the recent storm.
