Republicans muscled their capstone health care overhaul past an initial barrier and toward a climactic roll call Friday, plunging ahead despite uncertainty over whether they had the votes to prevail in what loomed as a monumental gamble for President Donald Trump and his GOP allies in Congress.
Two systems will impact the area through early next week. The first will bring Sierra snow Friday morning, with snow levels rising from Lake Tahoe Level to above 7000', then back below lake level by Friday evening. In addition to Sierra snow, this system will produce breezy weather, with valley rain showers. Sierra controls are likely at times above 7000'. A second front will move into the region late Sunday and possible cut off into an area of low pressure Monday into early Tuesday. Again, showers are possible with high elevation snow, but amounts are not expected to be significant. Keep the chains handy for possible winter travel over the passes through at least next week in this active pattern. -Jeff
