You will find higher snowfall amounts as you climb up the mountains.

When traveling make sure you grab the chains and expect delays.

At one point on Thursday, Interstate 80 near Donner Pass was closed due to a jackknifed big rig.

Gusty winds along with refreezing of snow and ice also pose risks.
