Special Statement

Statement as of 2:08 PM PST on January 15, 2017

Expires 9:00 AM EST on January 16, 2017


... Active weather pattern continues mid-week...

After a break in the weather, we expect a return to active
weather for the second half of the week with multiple fast moving
systems pushing across the region.

The first impact will be increasing winds on Wednesday afternoon
and evening. Wind gusts near 50 mph will be possible across the
Sierra and far western Nevada with higher readings along
windprone locations and gusts over 100 mph across the Sierra
crest.

This system has trended drier but still would be impactful to
travel across the Sierra with generally up to a foot of snowfall
possible in the Sierra with light to moderate rainfall for
western Nevada before snow levels fall to valley floors by Thursday
morning. Although, no significant flooding impacts are expected,
rises on small creeks and streams are still possible.

Subsequent quick moving and colder systems are possible Friday
and Saturday with a potential for a more potent system Sunday and
Monday. Snow levels may start near western Nevada Valley floors
leading to more widespread travel impacts across both the Sierra
and western Nevada. Those with travel plans during this timeframe
should continue to monitor the forecast over the upcoming week.
