The weekend storms brought up to a few feet of snow to the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada and a little bit of rain around Northern California.

Jason Clapp with the National Weather Service in Sacramento says this was a colder storm that resulted in some snow accumulation.

"The higher elevation well above 6,000 feet, you had a foot, some areas maybe up to two feet but that was pretty sporadic," says Clapp.

The National Weather Service says there's a weaker storm moving through the Sierra Nevada Monday -- that isn't expected to result in much snow or rain for the mountains.

Tuesday, the Department of Water Resources will conduct the third manual snow survey to measure the water content in the snowpack this winter.  The season's first two surveys found a below-normal snowpack.
