Weather on its way

1128 AM PST Tue Dec 6 2022

...Weak Winter System the End of the Week...Potentially Major

Winter Storm This Weekend...

After a couple of quiet and seasonably cool days, we`ll see the

return of winter weather the end of the week into the weekend.


Winds will become strong across Sierra ridgelines, with increased

breezes into lower valleys. A fast moving system will bring a

quick shot of snow, primarily to the Sierra north of Sonora Pass

and northeast California late Thursday into Friday. Up to 6 inches

of snow possible along the Sierra crest with periods of travel

difficulties. A few light showers may make it into western Nevada,

but overall much of western Nevada will remain dry.

Friday Night through the weekend:

Winds remain strong in the High Sierra with periods of stronger

winds surfacing in valley locations. Heavy Sierra snow with major

travel impacts possible throughout the entire weekend. Storm

totals will likely be measured in feet in the Sierra. Lower

valleys may see a rain/snow mix Saturday, otherwise plan on light

snow at all elevations into western Nevada with the worst travel

conditions expected to be Friday and Saturday nights.

Travel across the Sierra is not recommended this weekend. If you

choose to do so, make sure to have proper supplies and plan for

long delays.
