...Significant Sierra Winter Storm this Weekend...

A significant winter storm is poised to impact the Sierra this
weekend with the potential for several feet of snow from Friday
night into late Sunday. Travel across the Sierra is not
recommended this weekend and may be impossible at times. If you
choose to do so, make sure to have proper supplies and plan for
long delays. Winds will remain strong and gusty in the High Sierra
with periods of stronger winds surfacing in valley locations.
Areas of whiteout conditions will be possible across the Sierra on
Saturday due to strong winds and heavy snowfall.

Lower western Nevada valleys could see spillover rainfall
Saturday as snow levels rise to 5000-6000 feet. Periods of
moderate to heavy rainfall during this timeframe could create some
nuisance flooding for urban and poor drainage areas. Snow levels
will then rapidly drop to all western Nevada valley floors by
Sunday morning which will provide the best chances for a few
inches snow accumulation and travel impacts across lower valleys.
