The start of November will bring winter weather to Lake Tahoe.

A winter storm is forecast to move into northern California and northern Nevada by Friday, according to a special statement from the National Weather Service.

The storm, which follows a streak of sunny days with warm temperatures, could impact travel in the northern Sierra Nevada over the weekend. Gusts of wind could further complicate travel.

High temperatures in South Lake Tahoe will range in the mid to high 50s through most of this week.

Western Nevada could see windy conditions and periods of rain and snow. Snow levels could fall below 5,500 feet by the end of the weekend, with some accumulation possible.

NWS recommends completing winterizing projects this week. If you are planning on traveling in the Sierra this weekend, have a winter kit including tire chains, water and food.
