SACRAMENTO (AP) – A Sierra storm that dumped a foot of snow at Lake Tahoe is moving across western Nevada but forecasters say another one is on its way Thursday and Friday.

A winter storm warning remained in effect until 10 p.m. at Tahoe, where most schools were canceled Wednesday. The Mount Rose ski resort reported 15 inches of new snow overnight. About 4 inches fell in Reno and up to 6 inches in the surrounding foothills.

Chains or snow tires are required on most mountain roads, including a 70-mile stretch of Interstate 80 between Reno and Alta, Calif.

The National Weather Service says heavy snow is expected east of Reno later Wednesday with 1 to 2 inches per hour possible in some areas as the storm moves to the south and east.

    I don’t complain, we need the rain and the snow. If you have to travel to a higher elevation, take extra time and drive carefully. In the valley, there is no worry. Are our lakes full yet?
