...Active Weather Pattern Continues...

The next weather system will quickly move through the region
tonight and Wednesday morning. Be prepared for travel
restrictions due to gusty winds and some delays in driving over
the high Sierra passes.

* Winds...Gusts of 30 to 45 mph are possible this evening through
  late Wednesday morning. The strongest winds should occur early
  Wednesday morning with bumpy flights in and out of the region.

* Rain and Snow...Expect some light rain and snow in the northern
  Sierra Sierra tonight and Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations
  are expected to be less than an inch or two but even wet roads
  will slow travel over the passes. Little to no rain and snow
  will affect western Nevada and the eastern Sierra.

* Additional Storms...After a fairly modest system Friday, a
  potentially much stronger system is on the horizon for Sunday
  and Monday. This storm is expected to be rather warm with snow
  levels at least 7000 to 8000 feet during the heaviest
  precipitation. Strong winds, heavy snowfall in the high Sierra,
  and periods of heavy rainfall are possible.
