Snow will continue to be heavy at times in the Sierra and motorists are being warned of hazardous travel conditions. 

The unsettled weather pattern continues for the next three days.

The unsettled weather pattern continues through the weekend with additional systems coming in Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

In the Lake Tahoe area, a winter weather advisory remains in effect until Wednesday evening. About two to four inches of snow is expected at Truckee and Lake Tahoe and four to 10 inches in higher elevations.
