...SEVERAL WINTER STORMS EXPECTED THROUGH SATURDAY...

TODAY: The second part of this storm moves in this morning with
the Sierra from Tahoe through Mono County expected to see more
rain and snow. With snow levels around 6500 feet, travel will be
impacted across all Sierra passes. 4-8 inches of accumulation is
possible for Donner Summit, Echo Pass, Mt Rose Summit, and passes
on Highway 395 in Mono County including Devil`s Gate, Conway, and
Deadman`s. Elsewhere along roadways, little if any accumulation is
expected, including at Lake Tahoe Level. The higher terrain of
the Sierra could pick up 8-16" of snow with up to 20" on the
crest in Mono county from this storm.

TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT: The main event continues to be
the winter storm moving in tonight through Thursday night. 1-3`
of snow is possible above 7000 feet in the Sierra, with 6-12"
elsewhere. This will create major travel delays throughout the
Sierra. The biggest boom or bust potential are elevations in the
5000-6500` elevation range where 4-8 inches remains possible. In
northeast California, elevations above 6000 feet could pick up
4-14", with minor travel impacts possible for the higher passes
along CA-36, CA-49, CA-299.

SATURDAY: Another cold storm follows for Saturday with additional
snow expected through the the Sierra, northeast California, and
northwest Nevada. Saturday morning will be the best chance to
receive a few inches of accumulating snow in the low valleys of
western Nevada including Reno, Carson City, and Minden.
