... Winter Weather Advisory now in effect until 10 am PST this
morning...
... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 4 am Friday to 10 am
PST Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Reno continues a Winter Weather
Advisory through 10am this morning and has issued a Winter Weather
Advisory for snow for the next system, which is in effect from 4
am Friday to 10 am PST Saturday.

* Timing: moderate snow will continue through early this morning
before tapering to showers by early afternoon. The next wave of
heavy snowfall will begin early Friday morning into Saturday
morning.

* Snow accumulations Friday-saturday: 12 to 18 inches above 7000
feet with 6 to 12 inches at lake level.

* Winds Friday-saturday: southwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts 30 to
45 mph. Ridge gusts up to 100 mph.

* Wave heights on Lake Tahoe Friday-saturday: 2 to 3
feet... highest from mid lake to northeastern shores.

* Impacts: expect difficult travel with snow covered roads and
chain requirements. Small boats, kayaks and paddle boards will
be prone to capsizing and should remain off lake waters until
conditions improve.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during
periods of high traffic volume. Winds will create periods of
whiteout conditions making travel difficult at times. Be sure to
allow extra time to reach your destination. Leave extra space
between vehicles since it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.
