...SNOW EXPECTED TO BRING SLICK TRAVEL CONDITIONS MONDAY, WITH A
STRONGER WINTER STORM BECOMING MORE LIKELY BY THURSDAY AND
An active weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week as two
storm systems affect the Sierra and western Nevada.
The first storm will bring snow to far northeast California by
late Sunday evening, then spread south and east overnight into
Monday. Winter Weather advisories are in effect for northeast
California, northwest Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Area, where
snowfall amounts are most likely to range from several inches up
to 1 foot. For the remainder of western Nevada and into Mono
County, overall snowfall amounts are not expected to be as
significant, but there remains a possibility for portions of these
areas to receive short periods of moderate to heavy snowfall,
producing poor visibility and slick travel conditions. Now is the
time to ensure your vehicle is ready for winter driving, and
expect extra travel time or adjust plans for both the morning and
afternoon commutes on Monday. Across lower elevations, roads
could become icy and dangerous by Monday evening as temperatures
drop below freezing.
For Thursday and Friday, a stronger Pacific storm will arrive
with gusty winds, rain and snow. Significant snowfall is likely in
the Sierra Thursday into Friday night. Rain and snow are likely
in Western Nevada with some snow accumulation possible late
Thursday night into Friday on the valley floors. Details on
snowfall will become clearer as we get closer to the event. Check
back later in the week for the latest information on this
