RENO (AP) — A pair of weekend storms are expected to follow across much of northern Nevada and the Sierra on the heels of one that dropped a foot of snow overnight at Lake Tahoe ski resorts.

Mammoth Mountain south of Yosemite National Park reported 18 inches of snow early Friday with 16 inches at Alpine Meadows on Tahoe's west shore and about a half-foot at Mount Rose.

A colder storm packing powerful winds is expected to arrive late Friday into Saturday.

Snow levels could drop below 5,000 feet. A winter weather advisory has been issued for most of northeast Nevada from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday.
