The highway patrol had closed I-80 in the Sierras for several hours on Wednesday because of the snow, but the road was <a href="https://www.facebook.com/chp.truckee/photos/a.1547549818790317.1073741831.1546974278847871/1855375424674420/?type=3" target="_blank">re-opened</a> in the evening to all vehicles except tractor-trailers. Drivers were warned to use chains on their vehicles on the roads.

About a foot of snow <a href="http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/snowfall-Sierra-Nevada-ski-resort-storms-ski-snow-10868564.php" target="_blank">fell overnight</a>, and another 20 inches of snow were expected as a second storm moved into the Sierras Thursday night and Friday.
