...STORMY WEATHER RETURNS WITH TRAVEL IMPACTS STARTING TUESDAY,
LIKELY EXTENDING THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR....

A series of Pacific winter storms will bring periods of stormy
weather to much of California and Nevada next week. There will be
few, if any, meaningful breaks in the weather for the Sierra once
the storms begin on Tuesday, so plan ahead.

* Through Monday: Quiet weather, light winds, and no
precipitation. Wrap up travel plans if you can, clear drains
and gutters of debris, and re-secure holiday decorations.

* Tuesday - Thursday Evening: The next round of significant
mountain snowfall may begin as early as Tuesday in northeastern
California and the Sierra locations. Significant snowpack
buildup probable for locations above 6500 feet. Western Nevada
and other areas below 6500 feet will be dealing with periods
of rain, snow and a wintry mix as snow levels fluctuate
midweek.

* Christmas Eve - Christmas Day: Another round of snow is
probable for the holiday, with simulations leaning towards snow
at all elevations. Yes, even down in Reno-Carson. The lowest
valleys below 4500 feet may remain a rain/snow mix, but plan on
a breezy and wet/snowy mess on roads region-wide.

* Through the New Year: Simulations continue to highlight the
potential for active weather through Christmas into the New
Year for the Sierra and Western Nevada.

* Consider alternate routes or adjusting plans if you are
traveling for the holidays. This is especially true if you`re
heading into or out of the Sierra areas, where chain controls
are likely to be in place. Monitor the latest weather forecast
(weather.gov/reno) and check road conditions routinely (511 for
Nevada and 1-800-427-7623 for California).
