...ACTIVE WEATHER THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND...

A couple more storms will impact the region through the holiday
weekend. The next storm for late tonight into Saturday is colder,
so there is potential for snow down to around 5000 feet. Plan for
another round of gusty winds and wintry precipitation. Strong
gusty winds are forecast along the front with wind gusts 40 to 50
mph possible for the valley areas and gusts up to 100 mph in the
Sierra. For locations along and east of Highway 95, the strong
winds may create difficult driving conditions for high profile
vehicles as well as areas of blowing dust.


The next storm arrives at arguably the worst time during the
holiday weekend, late Sunday night into Monday morning. This
third storm in the series will usher in more gusty winds, chances
for snow and impacts to the end of the holiday weekend.
Forecaster confidence remains high for travel disruptions along
the Sierra passes with all of these systems and some concerns for
western Nevada roadways too.

There will be a handful of what we`ll call `preferred travel
times` through Monday. Always check the road conditions before you
go. Here are the preferred travel times we are focused on right
now:

Weather Breaks aka Preferred Travel Times
- Friday until about 10-11 PM
- Sunday until about 8 PM


WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: If you are planning to travel for the holiday
weekend, prepare for winter driving conditions and delays with
emphasis on the Sierra passes. Monitor the forecast and think
about the possibility of altering your plans.
