    The National Weather Service says the Sierra Nevada will get more snow as a new wave of winter-like storms push through California.

    The first wave of significant snow is predicted to go from Friday into Saturday.

    Forecasters say there will be a break in rain and snow Saturday night and then another storm is expected to spread over Northern California on Sunday — a wet pattern that will continue through Christmas Day.
