...Active weather possible this weekend and next week...

After a few days of quiet weather for the eastern Sierra and
western Nevada, the probability is increasing for a more active
weather pattern starting as early as this Saturday, continuing
into next week.

While it remains too early to discuss exact amounts of both rain
and snow, the first round of precipitation is becoming more likely
to occur Saturday and Saturday night, with snow in the Sierra and
a mix of rain and snow in the valleys. This may pose significant
travel impacts in the Sierra over the weekend.

Additional periods of mountain snow, with a mix of rain and snow
in valleys, could occur from Sunday through the middle of next
week. Anyone with travel plans this coming weekend and next week
should check back frequently for the latest forecast updates.
