...ANOTHER ROUND OF SNOW THIS WEEKEND WITH THE STRONGEST STORM
SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

Another round of storms will impact the region this weekend. While
snow accumulations aren`t expected to rival those from last
weekend, disruptions to travel could still be significant.

* Storm 1 - Late tonight

A very weak system will bring light snow to portions of Lassen
County along with the Surprise Valley and northern washoe County.
Up to 2 inches is possible.

* Storm 2 - Friday night through Saturday morning.

This storm is expected to begin to impact the Sierra Friday
evening with 6 to 14 inches of snow possible by Saturday morning.
Temperatures will remain cold with low snow levels and light
fluffy snow. As much as 1-2 inches could accumulate in the lower
valleys of western Nevada and northeast California, but the better
chance of accumulation will be in the foothills.

Most areas will see a break in the snowfall on Saturday, although
much of the Sierra may not see much of a break.

* Storm 3 - Saturday night through Sunday

A stronger storm is expected to impact the region late Saturday
night through Sunday evening. Initial estimates are for this storm
to bring additional snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 feet or more
in the Sierra with another round of accumulating snow in western
Nevada and northeast California valleys. Best estimates for these
lower valleys are 1 to 4 inches, but are highly dependent on how
quickly the front moves through the region.

Travel Precautions-

The second and third storms are expected to occur during periods
of peak skier commutes over Sierra passes. So, while total
snowfall accumulations seem small compared to last weekend,
disruptions to travel could be significant. Translation:
you could be stuck in your car for an extended period of time or
experience long delays. So come prepared.
