As visitors head to Tahoe for the holiday weekend, officials are urging caution as roads are expected to remain icy, some areas are still without power and other utilities, and an epic amount of snowfall has hampered road clearings. Use caution when traveling in the Tahoe Sierra and slow down.

The National Weather Service is calling for another system to move into the region on Wednesday into Thursday with snow levels at 7,000 to 8,000 feet in elevation.
