Fall is looking a lot like winter across Northern California.

The first major storm of the season on Monday brought snow to the Sierra Nevada and rain across the rest of the region.

The National Weather Service issued travel advisories for higher elevations, where up to 2 feet of snow was expected. Snow plows are in operation above 4,500 feet on Interstate 80 and chains are required.

Meanwhile, Highway 20 was closed east of Nevada City after five big-rigs jackknifed in 6 inches of snow.

A winter storm warning will remain in effect for higher elevations until 5 a.m. Tuesday. The heaviest snowfall is expected on Monday, though showers are likely into Tuesday night.

Yosemite National Park was expecting about 8 inches of snow above 6,000 feet.
