RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS: The focus for shower activity today will
be in the Sierra from I-80 south. Snow totals are likely going to
be highly variable over short distances. There is potential for
4-8 inches of additional snow in the Sierra if heavier showers
persist. Otherwise, scattered showers are possible elsewhere, but
will be much more hit or miss. It will may be a rain/snow/pellet
mix for lower elevations, with snow and snow pellets expected for
higher elevations. There is also a 20% chance for thunderstorms
this afternoon.

ROAD IMPACTS: Some roads may be icy this morning following the
snow that fell last night. Main concern is around the Tahoe Basin
in the Sierra, but there are chances for portions of the Washoe
and Carson Valleys and nearby foothills as well. Otherwise, any
roads in the Sierra from approximately I-80 south have potential
to see brief periods of snow accumulation from showers today,
leading to travel difficulties. Accumulations are likely to be
short-lived during the daylight hours given the time of the year.

TEMPERATURES: Remaining cool today with highs only reaching into
the 50s even in the warmer valleys. Lows will drop near or below
freezing tonight, especially outside of urban centers. Protect
any sensitive early season vegetation.
