...SNOW IN MONO COUNTY THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY...
...LIGHT SNOWFALL POSSIBLE FOR LOWER ELEVATIONS FRIDAY...

For Mono County, high winds, especially along and east of Highway
395, will be followed by snow as a cold front moves through the
region. Between 4 and 10 inches will be possible above 7000 feet,
locally higher near the crest, with up to 3 inches elsewhere.
Snow will combine with gusty winds late Thursday night and Friday
morning to produce areas of low visibility in blowing snow,
especially for wind-prone areas along Highway 395 and in the high
Sierra.

For western and west-central Nevada, accumulating snow is possible
late Thursday night and Friday morning. As much as 1 to 3 inches
of snowfall will be possible for the Reno-Sparks, Carson City, and
Minden areas, with up to an inch eastward into west-central
Nevada. Slick and snow covered roads could impact the peak commute
time Friday morning. Localized areas of blowing snow in wind-
prone locations could significantly reduce visibilities through
Friday morning.

If you have travel plans in Mono County Thursday afternoon through
Friday, ensure that your vehicle is ready for winter conditions,
including an emergency kit with extra food, water, clothing, and
tire chains if necessary. For the lower elevations of western and
west-central Nevada, be prepared for a long, slow commute on Friday
morning. Note that even a light snowfall can cause some of the
worst commute issues!
