Restrictions lifted on I-80 after Sierra snow, 137 mph wind

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Day-long travel restrictions were lifted on U.S. Interstate 80 in the Sierra late Tuesday after a winter storm packing snow and winds in excess of 130 mph blew through the region, but more rough weather is on the way. A winter storm watch has been upgraded to a warning for the Reno-Tahoe area Thursday when a more powerful system is forecast to bring up to 2 feet of snow to the highest elevations. A few inches to a half-foot of snow was recorded at most Tahoe-area ski resorts Tuesday. Alpine Meadows reported a 137 mph wind gust near Tahoe City, California.
