...Travel impacts likely for the upcoming holiday...

A strong winter storm will drop south southeast into eastern
California and western nevada tuesday then linger through the
Remainder of the week.

Early tuesday strong gusty winds could create significant
Turbulence for anyone flying in for the thanksgiving holiday.
Strong cross winds of up to 50 mph are also possible on north to
South oriented roads making travel hazardous for high profile
Vehicles.

A very strong cold front will sweep south during the day tuesday
And usher in much colder air along with periods of snow. There are
Still some uncertainties regarding the amount of snow the region
Will receive...But gusty winds may combine with even light amounts
Of snow to create holiday travel impacts with this storm. In the
Higher elevations of the sierra one foot or more is possible from
Tuesday through late wednesday. In the sierra valleys up to 6
Inches is possible. In the lower valleys of northeast california
And western nevada up to 3 inches of snow is possible. These
Amounts could rise if the storm system stays over the waters of
The eastern pacific a little longer.

Much colder air settles over the region from tuesday night into
Friday. Highs will be as much as 15 degrees below normal...Reaching
Only the 20s in the sierra valleys and lower to mid 30s in western
Nevada and northeast california. This will the be coldest air thus
Far this season and preparations should be made early to avoid
Cold related problems.

As mentioned...There are some uncertainties with the exact track
Of the storm and this will affect snow totals. Check back
Frequently for updates to forecast snow totals along with more
Information on the winds ahead of the storms and the cold
Temperatures later in the week.
