...SNOWFALL LIKELY FOR ALL ELEVATIONS THURSDAY WITH MUCH COLDER
TEMPERATURES INTO NEXT WEEKEND...

* Through tonight: A weak weather system brings snowfall
  accumulations of 3 to 6 inches for the higher elevations of the
  Sierra from near I-80 southward to Mono and Alpine counties. Up
  to an inch of snowfall is possible between 6,500 to 7,500 feet
  late overnight into early Tuesday morning. This could produce
  slick driving conditions for the passes around the Sierra and on
  Highway 395 in Mono County.

* A cold storm will drop into the region Wednesday evening through
  Thursday with snow levels dropping to all valley floors.
  Accumulating snow is highly likely (80% chance) for all
  elevations of western Nevada and the Sierra. However, there are
  still variations in the exact timing and totals. Lake-effect
  snow will also be possible southeast of Pyramid Lake and Lake
  Tahoe Thursday evening. Please see the Winter Storm Watch for
  more details.

* Much colder conditions will follow with high temperatures
  anticipated to only be in the 30s on Friday and brisk northwest
  wind gusts of 10-20 mph making it feel even colder. Overnight
  lows Friday night will drop into the teens and single digits
  across the region, with below zero temperatures in the colder
  valleys.

* Travel disruptions are a good bet and may impact peak commuting
  times on Thursday. Keep tabs on the forecast through the week
  ahead and follow the latest analysis and trends by reading the
  Forecast Discussion.
