Lingering showers have moved out of Sacramento, giving way to some blue skies and sunshine, while snowfall continues in the Sierra, at least through 11 a.m, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow levels dropped as low as 4,000 feet on Monday morning. High pressure pushing in off the Pacific will bring an end to the Sierra snowfall this afternoon, according to NWS.

A time-lapse video taken by the National Weather Service Reno showed the strong winds and rain that moved over the Sierra mountains on Sunday over an eight-hour period.

The rest of the week appears to be dry with another chance of rain and snow coming late Friday into Saturday morning. Highs for the week will hover around 60 degrees or slightly higher with some sunshine.
