.DAY ONE...Tonight.

No significant weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Forecast confidence remains high for a robust winter storm system
to impact the Great Basin Thursday and Friday. Accumulating snow
is likely across most valley locations across northeastern Nevada
with higher snow amounts across maintain ranges and passes. Snow
and blowing snow will result in definite travel impacts especially
Friday and Friday night. Valleys will begin with rain on
Thursday, quickly changing over to snow sometime on Thursday
night, with snow showers continuing through Saturday morning.
The storms path, timing, and strength could still change as we
approach the end of the week with further details being provided
as the event approaches. As of now, widespread valley snow
amounts of 1 to 4 inches is probable, especially across Elko and
White Pine counties. Mountain locations could receive 6 to 12
inches with locally higher amounts. Interested individuals,
especially those with recreational and travel plans, should
continue to monitor forecasts this week for possible advisories,
watches or warnings that may be issued.


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