Tuesday will be mostly cloudy in the morning, then becoming partly cloudy with a chance of showers. Highs will be in the lower 50s. South winds will be 10 to 20 mph. The chance of showers is 50 percent.

A cold weather system originating in western Canada will produce more shower activity from Monday through Tuesday, and could lower snow levels to less than 2,000 feet by early Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow was blanketing the Tahoe region, causing near whiteout conditions in some areas, authorities said. Chains are required (except 4-wheel drive vehicles) on Interstate 80 from Nyack in Placer County up to Truckee, according to Caltrans. The same chain requirements are in place for Highway 50 from 3 miles east of Kyburz to Meyers in El Dorado County.

Also on I-80, a high wind advisory was in effect over the Yolo Causeway and over Bryte Bend Bridge west of Sacramento, Caltrans said.

By Wednesday, the Bay Area should begin to dry out and continue that pattern through most of the day Thursday before the next round of rain arrives, the weather service said.
