  Probabilities for accumulating snow is around 40% across far

  1-2"/hour will be possible southeast of area lakes. This looks
  particularly favorable downwind of Pyramid Lake and Lake Tahoe
  Thursday evening.

* 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.

  times on Thursday. Keep tabs on the forecast through the week
  ahead and follow the latest analysis and trends by reading the
