CENTRAL NEVADA...NORTHEAST NEVADA AND NORTHWEST NEVADA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY.

NO SIGNIFICANT WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

POTENTIAL FOR SNOWFALL DURING THANKSGIVING WEEKEND RETURN TRAVEL.
BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON PACIFIC MOISTURE WILL COMBINE WITH A
DEVELOPING COLD FRONT OVER SOUTHERN IDAHO TO BRING RAIN AND SNOW
SHOWERS TO NORTHERN NEVADA. AT THIS TIME SNOW LEVELS LOOK TO BE
HIGH ENOUGH TO MITIGATE ANY TRAVEL CONCERNS. THE COLD FRONT IS
EXPECTED TO PUSH FURTHER SOUTH ON SUNDAY...BEFORE STALLING ACROSS
NORTHERN NEVADA. THIS WILL ALLOW COLDER AIR TO MOVE INTO THE
REGION AND DROP SNOW LEVELS TO 5000 FEET. FORECAST CONFIDENCE IS
STILL LOW AT THIS TIME AS MODELS HAVE HAD ISSUES HANDLING THIS
EVOLVING WEATHER PATTERN OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS.

EVEN WITH THE LOW CONFIDENCE...TRAVEL CONCERNS ARE EXPECTED AT
THIS TIME TO BE THE GREATEST ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA...ESPECIALLY
NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
