(KGTV/AP) - Snow is falling the Sierra Nevada mountains as summer winds to an end.

Friday is the first day of fall and it is a wet start for California.

A rare cool weather system moving south from Oregon is bringing rain and snow showers.

National Weather Service forecaster Hanna Chandler says several inches of snow are expected in elevations of at least 6,000 feet of the Northern Sierra.

The Weather Service says snow is falling in elevations of around 7,000 feet along the Interstate 80 and highway and 50 corridors.
