...A LIGHT SNOWFALL EXPECTED FOR THE SIERRA TUESDAY NIGHT AND
WEDNESDAY...

A low pressure system is likely to bring a light snowfall to the
Sierra as well as far southern Lyon and far western Mineral counties,
mainly above 6500 to 7000 feet, Tuesday night through Wednesday
evening.

The current snowfall predictions are: up to an inch for Mount Rose
and Spooner Summits and Carson Pass, 2 to 4 inches for Ebbetts,
Sonora, and Tioga passes as well as for passes along Highway 395.
Even though accumulations will be light, hazardous driving conditions
on these roads are likely Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Precipitation is forecast to diminish by Wednesday evening but
temperatures will be cold enough to refreeze any melting that takes
place during the day.

Ensure your vehicles are prepped for winter conditions and be sure
to allow extra time to reach your destination. Also, leave extra
space between vehicles since it takes longer to stop on slick
roadways.
