RENO, Nev. (AP) - Forecasters say a winter storm is expected to hit northern Nevada this week.

National Weather Service meteorologist Tony Fuentes says Washoe County residents can expect rain and snow, and forecasters have issued a winter weather advisory for the region.

Fuentes says a few inches of light snow had already accumulated in parts of the Sierra Sunday night and a second round is expected Monday.

He says one to three inches of snow could accumulate on the valley floor by Tuesday morning, with up to 5 inches of snow above 5,000 feet.

CalTrans officials said vehicle chains were required to cross Donner Pass in California on Sunday. California Highway Patrol in Truckee says additional chain controls were put into effect Monday morning.
