A storm known as an "inside slider" is bringing icy temperatures and a light dusting of snow to the northern Sierra Nevada Monday.

This type of storm drops directly down from the north and moves north to south as opposed to the more common Pacific storms that move from the west to east and come off the Pacific Ocean.

"It's a completely different trajectory and usually we have different characteristics with it," explains Dawn Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Reno office. "As a general rule, inside sliders tend to bring in colder air masses. Because these come from an inland trajectory, they don't have that Pacific moisture feed going into them and they tend to be drier."

A dusting of snow is expected in the valleys and peaks above 8,000 feet could see three to four inches.

Truckee is expected to see a high of 34 degrees and will drop to as low as 19 degrees overnight. This marks a huge drop from the unseasonably warm temperatures the area saw last week. On Friday, Truckee saw a high of 60 degrees.
