  • Effective: Monday, February 26, 2018 at 1 a.m.

  • ...SNOW EXPECTED TO BRING SLICK TRAVEL CONDITIONS MONDAY, WITH A
    STRONGER WINTER STORM BECOMING MORE LIKELY BY THURSDAY AND
    FRIDAY...
    An active weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week as two
    storm systems affect the Sierra and western Nevada.
    The first storm will bring snow to far northeast California by
    late tonight, then spread south and east overnight into Monday.
    Winter Weather advisories are in effect for northeast California,
    northwest Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Area, where snowfall amounts
    are most likely to range from several inches up to 1 foot. For the
    remainder of western Nevada and into Mono County, overall
    snowfall amounts are not expected to be as significant, but there
    remains a possibility for portions of these areas to receive short
    periods of moderate to heavy snowfall, producing poor visibility
    and slick travel conditions. Now is the time to ensure your
    vehicle is ready for winter driving. Expect extra travel time and
    adjust plans for both the morning (Sierra and NE California) and
    afternoon (Western Nevada) commutes on Monday. Across lower
    elevations, roads could become icy and dangerous by Monday evening
    as temperatures drop below freezing.
    For Thursday and Friday, a stronger Pacific storm will arrive
    with gusty winds, rain and snow. Significant snowfall is likely in
    the Sierra Thursday into Friday night. Rain and snow are likely
    in Western Nevada with some snow accumulation possible late
    Thursday night into Friday on the valley floors. Details on
    snowfall will become clearer as we get closer to the event so be
    sure to check back each day for updated information on this
    developing storm.
