* Late this afternoon and tonight: A weak weather system brings
  light snowfall accumulations up to a few inches for the higher
  elevations of the Sierra from near I-80 southward to Mono and
  Alpine counties. 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 Thursday with snow levels
  dropping to all valley floors. Accumulating snow is highly
  likely (70% chance) for all elevations of western Nevada and the
  Sierra, however there are still variations in the exact timing
  and totals.

* Much colder conditions will follow with high temperatures
  anticipated to only be in the 30s on Friday and brisk northwest
  wind gusts of 15-25 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

* 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.
