Expires:Sat 14-Dec-19 06:00am PST
Severity:Minor

Status:Actual
Type:Alert

Areas affected: Greater Lake Tahoe Area; Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties; Mono; Surprise Valley California
 
Message summary: ...Periods of wet weather will continue through the weekend...
A series of systems will bring periods of rain and snow to the region into Sunday. There will also be periods of gusty winds through Saturday, especially along the Highway 395 corridor south of Bridgeport where winds could occasionally gust over 45 mph. The current system today lasting into Saturday morning will bring lowering snow levels with increasing travel impacts for Sierra passes during this time. A colder system is expected late Saturday into Sunday morning with snow looking more likely down to all valley floors. Light snow will be possible with higher confidence for areas along the Portola-Reno-Fallon line to see the best chances during this time. Up to 2 inches of snow is possible for these areas by Sunday morning. This includes the Reno-Sparks metro area. Keep in mind that it doesn`t take much snow to bring travel difficulties. Bottom line: Travel is likely to be difficult for weekend travel and ski traffic crossing over the Sierra starting Friday afternoon, with slick conditions possible for portions of western Nevada Saturday night into Sunday. Make sure you are ready for winter driving conditions and allow extra time to reach your destination. Check with CALTRANS or NDOT for the latest travel restrictions before leaving for your destination.
