An active weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week as two
storm systems affect the Sierra and western Nevada.

The first storm will bring snow to far northeast California by
late tonight, then spread south and east overnight into Monday.
Winter Weather advisories are in effect for northeast California,
northwest Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Area, where snowfall amounts
are most likely to range from several inches up to 1 foot. For the
remainder of western Nevada and into Mono County, overall
snowfall amounts are not expected to be as significant, but there
remains a possibility for portions of these areas to receive short
periods of moderate to heavy snowfall, producing poor visibility
and slick travel conditions. Now is the time to ensure your
vehicle is ready for winter driving. Expect extra travel time and
adjust plans for both the morning (Sierra and NE California) and
afternoon (Western Nevada) commutes on Monday. Across lower
elevations, roads could become icy and dangerous by Monday evening
as temperatures drop below freezing.

For Thursday and Friday, a stronger Pacific storm will arrive
with gusty winds, rain and snow. Significant snowfall is likely in
the Sierra Thursday into Friday night. Rain and snow are likely
in Western Nevada with some snow accumulation possible late
Thursday night into Friday on the valley floors. Details on
snowfall will become clearer as we get closer to the event so be
sure to check back each day for updated information on this
developing storm.
