SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A storm system moving across California is bringing cool, wet weather and snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Chains or snow tires are required on most mountain highways around Lake Tahoe on the California-Nevada border as forecasters predict up to 18 inches of snow at the highest peaks through Monday night.

KOVR-TV reports chain controls on Interstate 80 caused traffic to back up for miles Sunday night.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento says a low-pressure system from the Gulf of Alaska is expected to drop up to ¾ of an inch of rain in the low elevations.

Temperatures in the San Francisco Bay Area and Central California are expected to dip to the 40s.

Rain is also anticipated along the Central Coast and in Southern California.
