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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

A strong storm system will begin to impact the state today.
Showers and thunderstorms will begin in Humboldt county late this
morning spreading eastward into central and eastern Nevada through
the evening hours. Gusty winds are expected across central and
parts of northern Nevada as well as near the stronger
thunderstorms. The highest winds will be across northern Nye
county and White Pine county where wind advisories are in effect.

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

Snow levels will remain above valley floors through Wednesday
morning. Snow will begin to reach valley floors from west to east
Wednesday afternoon and evening as colder air moves into the
region. This will lead to some light snow accumulations Wednesday
night across much of the state. However, higher elevations and
passes above 6500 will see anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of
snow while accumulations in the higher mountains could reach 1
foot through Thursday.

Several more rounds of snow are expected into the weekend as an
active weather pattern remains in place. Although no one
disturbance is expected to produce significant snow
accumulations, stay informed with weather information as the
forecast could change as the week progresses.


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