RENO, Nev. (AP) — The second round of a late-winter storm has moved into the Sierra.

More than a foot of snow is possible in the mountains around Lake Tahoe and high-wind warnings are in effect from Reno to Las Vegas.

At Lake Tahoe, snow made for slippery conditions on area highways early Wednesday. Chains were required over the highest passes.

Another half foot of snow was expected at the highest elevations as a winter-weather advisory remains in effect above 7,000 feet through 5 a.m. Thursday for much of the Sierra's eastern front.

More than 8 inches of new snow fell at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area at Mammoth Lakes, Calif., prompting resort officials to announce they will keep ski runs open through Memorial Day weekend for the 27th year in a row.
