...Gusty Winds Sunday, Rain/Snow Showers Sunday Night-Early Monday...

After a pleasant few days featuring warm temperatures and light
winds, our pattern will begin to change on Sunday with gusty
southwest winds increasing across the Sierra and western Nevada.

Gusty winds could yield localized road travel impacts for high
profile vehicles, rough air for aviation, and rough waters across
area lakes. Widespread gusts of 35-45 MPH are expected with
stronger gusts above 50 MPH through wind prone areas of Highway
395/I580 from northeastern California, western Nevada, and into
the eastern Sierra. Gusts of 80-100 mph possible across Sierra

Rain and snow showers will also accompany this system with snow
levels dropping to near 5000- 6000 Sunday night into Monday
morning. A trace to a couple inches of snowfall is possible along
higher Sierra passes including Donner Summit, Echo Summit, Carson
Pass, Mt Rose, Ebbetts Pass, and Sonora Pass. A light rain/snow
mix will also be possible across western Nevada valleys by early
Monday morning with snow levels dipping near 5000`-5500`.
