Thanks in advance!
I don't drive a jeep, nor have I ever had snow specific tires on my 4WD, but I would suggest doing something else. Weaverville is a long drive from most places. The road to Weaver Bally has steep, curvy sections throughout. I doubt you could drive anywhere near the best views. The final stretch is a narrow shelf road along a steep drop.
An active member living in Mt. Shasta City recently posted pics of 4 feet of unmelted snow at his place (not even up in the mountains). The link below gives a general idea of snow depth in the region. It hasn't been stormy the past couple of weeks, but has been cold. As you noted, it is warmer now.http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/snow/DLYSNOWDP
What do you hope to be able to do besides drive your jeep? There are other spots/peaks you could approach in a jeep (lower or plowed trailheads) and then use snowshoes/skis/crampons. Maybe try Castle Peak (Mt. Shasta area), Granite Peak (Trintity Alps), Mt. Shasta, Brokeoff/Lassen, or head to the Sierra.
