Winter Weather Advisory

Statement as of 3:43 AM PST on January 17, 2017

Expires 7:00 AM EST on January 19, 2017


... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 10 am Wednesday to 4 am
PST Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Weather
Advisory for moderate snow, which is in effect from 10 am
Wednesday to 4 am PST Thursday.

* Timing: snow will begin late Wednesday morning and continue
through early Thursday morning.

* Snow accumulations: 4 to 8 inches west of Highway 395 with up
to 4 inches east of Highway 395.

* Snow levels: beginning around 5500 feet early Wednesday before
dropping to 4500 feet late Wednesday evening.

* Impacts: expect hazardous travel conditions due to slick roads
and periods of very low visibility from wind driven snow.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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





Special Statement

Statement as of 3:55 AM PST on January 17, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EST on January 17, 2017


... Active weather pattern returns mid-week...

After a break in the weather, 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 40 mph will be possible across the
Sierra and far western Nevada with higher gusts in wind prone
locations. Gusts of 80 to 100 mph are possible over the Sierra
crest.

This first system has trended drier, but will still impact travel
across the Sierra. As much as a foot of snowfall is possible in
the higher elevations of the Sierra with light rainfall for
western Nevada before snow levels fall to the valley floors
Thursday morning. Although no significant flooding impacts are
expected, modest rises on small creeks and streams are still
possible.

Subsequent quick moving and colder systems are possible Friday
through early Saturday and again Sunday into Monday. The Sunday
storm has the potential to be the strongest storm in this series. Snow
levels are likely to start near western Nevada Valley floors in
each of these storms leading to more widespread travel impacts
across both the Sierra and western Nevada. Anyone with travel
plans during this time frame should continue to monitor the
forecast over the upcoming week.
