An early season cold front moved through northern California Tuesday night (10/9) bringing with it the first significant snowfall of the season.

By Wednesday (10/10) parts of the Sierras looked like a winter wonderland. The storm system left five inches of snow at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, which reported its first snowfall on Sept. 20th.

Chains or snow tires were required early Wednesday over most mountain passes in the Lake Tahoe region, including Interstate 80 and U.S. 50. Most restrictions were lifted by mid-morning.
