  possible. Stronger wind gusts nearing 70 mph will be possible
  downwind of canyons and in wind prone locations.

* WHERE...Mono County.

* WHEN...From Monday morning through Monday evening.

* IMPACTS...Damaging winds could blow down trees and power
  lines. Widespread power outages are possible. Travel could be
  difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Wind gusts will primarily be in the 45 to
  55 mph range, but intermittent gusts near 70 mph will be
  possible. Due to lack of precipitation, there will also be
  heightened fire concerns with the strong winds.


Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.

...Winter Weather Returns This Week...

After a relatively quiet day today, an active weather pattern
will resume on Monday with periods of snow and gusty winds through
Wednesday and possibly Thursday. While we are not anticipating
any strong storms, these storms will be on the colder side, which
could bring snow to lower elevations. Highlights of this week`s
weather include:

* Winds Monday Afternoon-Evening: Gusts of 30-50 mph, with
  stronger gusts of 55 mph or greater in wind prone areas. Sierra
  ridge gusts 70-90 mph.

* Snow Monday Night Through Wednesday: Snow begins in northeast
  California Monday night, and spreads across the Sierra Tuesday
  through Wednesday. Best snow chances near the Sierra Crest, with
  accumulations mainly during the overnight-morning hours. Periods
  of light snow also possible in lower elevations of far western
  Nevada mainly Tuesday night into Wednesday. Snowfall totals of
  several inches are possible in the eastern Sierra, Tahoe Basin,
  and higher elevations of northeast California, with 1 foot or
  more near the Sierra Crest. An inch or two of snow could
  accumulate around the main western Nevada cities, mainly in
  foothill areas.

* Light Snow Wednesday Night-Thursday: Periods of snow showers may
  bring additional light accumulations mainly to Mono County, and
  higher elevations of western Nevada south of Highway 50.

Some uncertainty in the storm track could impact the forecast
snowfall amounts, especially farther east of the Sierra Crest. In
any case, travel disruptions should be expected across the Sierra
and possibly into western Nevada at times Monday afternoon through
