...Stormy Spring Weather Pattern Returns Through the Week...

After recent very warm spring weather, stormy weather will return
this week with periods of gusty winds, rain, mountain snow, and
much cooler temperatures. The first storm is expected Tuesday with
a second, potentially stronger storm, for the end of the week.

* Timing: Precipitation will begin in the Sierra late Monday night
with the heaviest precipitation expected Tuesday morning through
early afternoon. Winds will pick up today with the stronger
winds expected Tuesday.

* Precipitation and Snow levels: Total precipitation of 1-1.5"
along the Sierra crest with 0.1-0.3 in western Nevada. Snow
levels start at 7000-8000 feet Tuesday morning dropping to
5500-6500 feet by Wednesday morning.

* Impacts: Snow accumulations along higher Sierra passes (Carson,
Echo, Mt. Rose) of 4-8 inches will be possible Tuesday. Donner
Pass could see occasional slushy accumulations Tuesday with
accumulating snow on the road becoming more likely Tuesday
evening as snow levels drop. A few inches of snow may accumulate
at lower elevations around the Tahoe Basin and Mammoth Lakes
Tuesday night into Wednesday. The Susan River and Middle Fork of
the Feather River will see significant rises, but no flooding is
currently forecast.

* Confidence: Forecast confidence is moderate for snow
accumulations below 7500 feet due challenges in snow levels
