This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Nevada...north
central Nevada...northeast Nevada...northwest Nevada and south
central Nevada.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

No significant weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

Mild and dry weather expected through Tuesday. Late Tuesday night
into Wednesday, a cold front will drop southeast across the
region, bringing snow, gusty winds and much colder temperatures.
The initial band of snow could be moderate at times. In addition,
winds are expected to pick up ahead and behind the frontal
passage, which could lead to reduced visibility due to areas of
blowing and drifting snow. Morning commuters should be aware of
potential weather impacts to their travel. Snow showers and
breezy winds will continue into Wednesday night before dissipating
Thursday morning. Valley snow amounts will generally range in the
1-2 inch range for areas along and north of U.S. Highway 50.
Higher amounts possible for higher valleys and summits, especially
over northern NV. Starting Thursday, colder than normal
temperatures will be in place over the Great Basin. An even colder
shot of air is possible as we head towards next weekend. If you
are getting an early start to your holiday travel, make sure you
are aware of updated weather forecasts and road conditions.


Spotters are asked to report weather phenomena according to
standard operating procedure.
