...ACCUMULATING SNOW AND SLIPPERY ROADS POSSIBLE TODAY...

A WEAK PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM IS MOVING INTO THE REGION. BANDS OF
LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE AREA LATER
THIS MORNING AND THROUGH THE DAY. THE EXACT LOCATION OF THESE
BANDS IS UNCERTAIN...BUT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE
POSSIBLE WHEREVER THESE SNOW BANDS SET UP. THE MOST LIKELY
LOCATION OF THESE SNOW BANDS WILL BE FROM NORTHWESTERN NYE
COUNTY...NORTHEAST INTO LANDER AND EUREKA COUNTIES...AND FINALLY
EXTENDING INTO MOST OF ELKO COUNTY. HOWEVER...SNOW SHOWERS MAY
ALSO DEVELOP AS FAR SOUTHEAST AS WHITE PINE COUNTY...OR AS FAR
NORTHWEST AS HUMBOLDT COUNTY. WHILE SOME AREAS WILL SEE
ACCUMULATING SNOW TODAY...OTHER LOCATIONS MAY RECEIVE LITTLE OR
NOTHING.

MOTORISTS SHOULD PLAN FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF REDUCED
VISIBILITIES AND SNOW COVERED ROADS TODAY. MOST ROADS WILL BE WET
BY MIDDAY WITH SOME SLIPPERY CONDITIONS STILL POSSIBLE IN THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS ESPECIALLY NEAR PASSES AND SUMMITS.
HIGHWAYS WHICH MAY BE AFFECTED INCLUDE INTERSTATE 80...U.S. ROUTE
50...U.S. ROUTE 93 AND U.S. ROUTE 95. TRAVEL MAY BE IMPACTED.
