...Quick Hitting Winter Storm Sunday Followed By Bitterly Cold

* Snow will begin to push into the region Sunday morning working
  from north to south through the day. While a few light snow
  showers may linger south of Mono Lake early Monday morning,
  overall the system will be out of the area Monday.

* This will be a cold system, with powdery snow at all elevations.
  Generally speaking, 3 to 8 inches of snow is expected in the
  Sierra with a dusting up to several inches for western Nevada.
  Please see the Winter Weather Advisory for additional details.

* It doesn`t take much for the snow to pack down into ice as cars
  drive over it. Driving conditions may get messy Sunday, with
  the potential for lingering icy conditions into the Monday
  morning commute.

* For the latest roadway conditions call 5 1 1 or download
  Caltran`s and NDOT`s smart phone applications, Quickmap and
  NVRoads, respectively.

* Frigid temperatures will settle into the region behind this
  storm with highs remaining below freezing Monday and possibly
  Tuesday. Overnight lows Monday night could be the coldest some
  locations have seen in 5-10 years. Preparations should be made
  to protect vulnerable populations and pets from these very cold
  temperatures. It`s also a good idea to make sure that your pipes
  are protected from the cold.
