...SNOWFALL POSSIBLE FOR ALL ELEVATIONS THURSDAY WITH MUCH COLDER
TEMPERATURES INTO NEXT WEEKEND...

* Late this afternoon and tonight: A weak weather system brings
light snowfall accumulations up to a few inches for the higher
elevations of the Sierra from near I-80 southward to Mono and
Alpine counties. This could produce slick driving conditions for
the passes around the Sierra and on Highway 395 in Mono County.

* A cold storm will drop into the region Thursday with snow levels
dropping to all valley floors. Accumulating snow is highly
likely (70% chance) for all elevations of western Nevada and the
Sierra, however there are still variations in the exact timing
and totals.

* Much colder conditions will follow with high temperatures
anticipated to only be in the 30s on Friday and brisk northwest
wind gusts of 15-25 mph making it feel even colder. Overnight
lows Friday night will drop into the teens and single digits
across the region, with below zero temperatures in the colder
valleys.

* Travel disruptions are a good bet and may impact peak commuting
times on Thursday. Keep tabs on the forecast through the week
ahead and follow the latest analysis and trends by reading the
Forecast Discussion.
