...SERIES OF WINTER STORMS EXPECTED THROUGH NEXT WEEK...

An active winter weather pattern will prevail through much of
next week as a series of progressively stronger winter storms
push through the Sierra and western Nevada. A significant winter
storm is looking increasingly likely by late Tuesday through at
least Thursday. Additional waves of moderate to heavy snowfall are
possible through next weekend.

Sunday night and Monday:

The next storm in line is expected to be fairly modest but will
bring several inches of accumulating snowfall to the Sierra and
portions of western Nevada. There may also be a chance for lake-
effect snow downwind from Lake Tahoe and Pyramid Lake, especially
Monday. Be prepared for periods of slick travel with chain and
snow tire requirements possible at times.

Tuesday night into Thursday:

A strong winter storm will likely bring heavy snowfall to the
Sierra with major impacts possible. Several feet of snowfall will
be possible across the Sierra during this period with low snow
levels expected from the onset. The low snow levels will also
allow western Nevada valleys to see snow a majority of the time
during this period aside from a possible rain/snow mix Wednesday
afternoon before changing back over to snowfall through Thursday.
As snow levels will remain low, travel issues are becoming
increasingly likely in western Nevada.

Also keep in mind that if the storm turns out to trend towards
the high-end of predictions, travel could wind up being impossible
at times across the Sierra with areas of blizzard conditions and
periodic road closures.

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts and discussions. The pattern
remains unsettled into at least early February with an additional
storm possible around the start of the month.
