...Spring Storms to Bring Wind and Snow Impacts This Week...

A series of weak-moderate spring storms will bring weather impacts
to the Sierra and Western Nevada at times Monday through Thursday.

* If wind is your worry: Monday and Wednesday are the days to
  watch with widespread gusty south to southwest winds forecast.
  Travel impacts on wind prone roads such as Highway 395/580 along
  with increased turbulence can be expected. This does not appear
  to be a major, damaging wind scenario however. Tuesday will be
  breezy too but probably not as strong.

* If snow is scary: Definitely keep an eye on late Tuesday night
  into Wednesday when the strongest storm is expected to impact
  the region. Heavy wet snow will affect travel in the Sierra,
  especially at pass elevations, with less certain impact into
  mountain communities and Western Nevada foothills above 5500
  feet. The morning commute Wednesday could be problematic in the
  mountains. Some lighter snow may affect travel in the Sierra and
  Northeast California Monday evening into Tuesday morning but
  impact risk appears lower. Scattered snow and pellet showers are
  forecast Thursday region-wide but impacts will be localized and

* If flooding is your fear: Wednesday is worth watching but not
  overly concerning. A period of spillover rains will impact
  Western Nevada valleys and cities Wednesday leading to some
  rises on creeks plus minor and temporary flooding of poor
  drainage areas. Rain could lead to a slow commute Wednesday
