...MULTIPLE SYSTEMS TO IMPACT THE REGION THIS WEEKEND...

A STRONG JET IS FORECAST TO PUSH SEVERAL WET SYSTEMS INTO THE
REGION THIS WEEKEND. THE FIRST WAVE WILL PUSH INTO THE WEST
FRIDAY...FOLLOWED BY A SECOND MUCH STRONGER WAVE SATURDAY. TWO
MORE WAVES OF MOISTURE FOLLOW INTO THE REGION SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

SNOW LEVELS ARE UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME AND COULD RANGE ANYWHERE
FROM 5500 FEET UP TO 8000 FEET OVER THE COURSE OF THE WEEKEND.
THIS COULD SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGE THE FORECAST AND IMPACTS OF THESE
SYSTEMS. THE OTHER UNCERTAINTY IS WHETHER THE NORTHERN SIERRA OR
SOUTHERN SIERRA WILL BE HARDEST HIT AS THERE ARE MODEL
DIFFERENCES.

WHILE EXACT PLACEMENT AND SNOW LEVELS MAY NOT BE CERTAIN AT THIS
TIME...CONFIDENCE IS HIGH THAT A VERY WET PATTERN WILL BRING
SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION TO THE REGION THIS COMING
WEEKEND. THERE IS ALSO THE POTENTIAL FOR ADDITIONAL SYSTEMS TO
IMPACT THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEK. CHECK BACK AT WEATHER.GOV/RENO
FOR THE UPCOMING DETAILS ON THIS MULTIPLE DAY EVENT.
