Snow Across the Sierra On Wednesday

NOAA is predicting snow for the Sierra on Wednesday with as much as a foot + at higher elevations. Here is more from US National Weather Service Reno Nevada
The next system to impact the region will drop out of the Gulf of Alaska bringing much colder temperatures and increased chances for snow across the Sierra and western Nevada. Several models indicate the potential for dropping snow levels with a cold front moving through the region on Wednesday. Differences in the models could result in a couple scenarios.
Scenario #1 shows a track of the system right along the California coast which would result in limited chances for precipitation in western Nevada valleys, but good chances for snow along the Sierra.
Scenario #2 is a bit further east, more typical inside slider setup, which would result in snow levels dropping to valley floors with accumulations possible in western Nevada valleys and amounts up to a foot possible near the crest. Both scenarios would result in a significant drop in temp. Confidence is high with regard to trough but only moderate on track.

        You might remember last season when we had some warm conditions (similar to the last few weeks) and then some fresh snow and people we were getting slides all over the place, douche.

        Please do yourself and the friends you shred with a big favor. Either stay out of the backcountry or get yourself in an avalanche awareness class.

        Your reasoning is wrong. Sure it could happen the same as last year. But you need to understand that EVERY snowfall event is as infinite as the falling snowflake. Many factors contribute to instability as well as stability.

        eh. never mind. your not a douche. you just don’t ski back country… so how would you have known.

        If your really that worried about 6-8inches of fluff releasing ontop of our locked up base you probably shouldnt be in the backcountry….

        all good brah, until your blatantly obvious poor understanding of avalanche dynamics makes you take the last ride, on 6 inches of fluff sitting on boilerplate, carrying you through the trees, over rocks, where the sky is rose and the mountains are more beautiful than ever before…
