Westbound traffic is back open on Interstate 80 over the mountain pass.
Snow is sticking to roads in the high sierra causing spin-outs, road closures and chain controls.
There are 6 to 12 inches above 7000 feet. KOLO's Dennis Flack says, "the snow level is dropping, the cold front came through early this morning which will will drop the rain-snow line below lake level by mid-day."
The winter storm warning above 7,000 feet goes until 2 pm. Reno will not be affected by snow today, just rain on the valley floor.
