   Wintry weather blasting into Auburn today will likely douse a brilliant show of autumn color.
   Storm clouds are expected to churn through Auburn and the Sierra starting today, and the chill, wet weather will continue through the weekend.
   The National Weather Service is forecasting rain this afternoon that will tally about an inch by tonight.
   On Friday, another inch of rain is expected, most of that falling in the early morning hours.
   Saturday should be light with a quarter inch of rain, while Sunday should see another heavy dousing.
In the mountains, snow is expected off and on for the next few days. Drivers should carry chains and take extra precautions traveling into the Sierra.
