The trough for the weekend has continued to slow its progression inland and is digging further south in the Eastern Pacific. Forecast models have finally come into better agreement, increasing forecaster confidence, and are now showing the trough to swing inland Sunday afternoon. Strong winds aloft ahead of the trough which will lead to gusty winds on Saturday with gusts up to 45 mph in valleys and 80 to 90 mph across Sierra ridges. The image on the left is showing the position of the trough on Sunday morning with model precipitation in the blue and green shaded areas. The southern branch of the trough is stronger and is expected to bring the best energy into Mono County Sunday afternoon and evening. This will keep precipitation chances limited to the Sierra Crest, down through Mono County with 3 to 6 inches of snow possible above 7000 feet. As the low rotates inland, moisture will wrap around and bring rain and snow into Western Nevada by Monday morning, as shown in the image on the right.
