As expected, snow started to come down in Tehachapi for the first time this season.

A Winter Weather Advisory was been issued for the Kern County Mountains through 10 PM Sunday. The ground is warm, meaning much of the snow that falls will melt on impact, and the amount of snow that sticks will be difficult to forecast.

There is the potential for anywhere from almost no snow to as much as two inches to stick at pass level.

That means there's a chance the passes will become snow-covered and slippery this weekend, and travelers should be prepared to take it slow, and monitor road conditions closely.
