Winter Storm Warning! BLIZZARD CONDITIONS OVER PASSES

By

 


Look for rain to start across the region by late today or tonight with snow levels between 7000 and 8000 feet. As this front moves in with full force Tuesday, those snow levels should drop, first to Lake Level and then down into the high foothills, probably below 5,000 feet. By late Tuesday or early Wednesday we should have 5 to 10 inches of new snow around the lake with up to two feet above 8,000 feet.

High winds that are expected to accompany the storm mean that blizzard conditions will be possible at the storm's peak on Tuesday. Winds of 20 mph to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph at Lake Level are possible, and winds of 100 mph at the Sierra Crest are not out of the question. The Reno office of the NWS has issued a rare "blizzard watch" warning the public of this possibility.

Snow or at least snow showers are forecast to continue into Wednesday before we get a short break. Another shot of precipitation is possible Friday.
