It's raining on the west side of the Valley and there are road controls on Kingsbury and over Spooner Summit. Getting over the passes won't be easy either, with snow tires or chains required over Carson Pass. Four-wheel drive or chains are being required on Highway 50 over Echo Summit and over Interstate 80.
