Special Statement
Issued: 3:34 PM PST Feb. 25, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Snow expected to bring slick travel conditions Monday, with a
stronger winter storm becoming more likely by Thursday and
Friday...

An active weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week as two
storm systems affect the Sierra and western Nevada.

The first storm will bring snow to far northeast California by
late tonight, then spread south and east overnight into Monday.
Winter weather advisories are in effect for northeast California,
northwest Nevada and the Lake Tahoe area, where snowfall amounts
are most likely to range from several inches up to 1 foot. For the
remainder of western Nevada and into Mono County, overall
snowfall amounts are not expected to be as significant, but there
remains a possibility for portions of these areas to receive short
periods of moderate to heavy snowfall, producing poor visibility
and slick travel conditions. Now is the time to ensure your
vehicle is ready for winter driving, and expect extra travel time
or adjust plans for both the morning (sierra and NE california) and
afternoon (western nevada) commutes on Monday. Across lower
elevations, roads could become icy and dangerous by Monday evening
as temperatures drop below freezing.

For Thursday and Friday, a stronger Pacific storm will arrive
with gusty winds, rain and snow. Heavy snowfall is expected in
the Sierra Thursday into Saturday. Rain and snow are likely in
western Nevada on Thursday, changing to all snow late Thursday
night or Friday morning. Details on snowfall will become clearer
as we get closer to the event so be sure to check back each day
for updated information on this winter storm.
