Watches & Warnings

High Wind Watch
Issued: 2:25 PM PST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... High wind watch in effect from Thursday morning through
Thursday evening...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a high wind
watch, which is in effect from Thursday morning through Thursday
evening.

* Timing: south to southwest winds will begin increasing early
Thursday morning ahead of a strong cold front. Winds will peak
Thursday afternoon and early evening before decreasing behind
the front.

* Winds: south to southwest 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 65 mph
possible. Wind-prone areas such as Interstate 580 south of Reno
and Highway 395 near Stead and Cold Springs could see gusts 65
to 75 mph.

* Impacts: dangerous cross-wind conditions, especially for high-
profile vehicles, which could cause loss of vehicle control.
Semi trucks will be in danger of tipping over. Travel
restrictions are likely for high-profile vehicles. Possible
damage to trees and powerlines.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture and trash cans before winds increase. 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.

Be prepared to take alternate routes if roads are closed due to
high winds, particularly if you plan on traveling in a high-
profile vehicle. Snow will follow the winds; see the Special
Weather Statement for more details.





Special Statement
Issued: 2:23 PM PST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Snow in Mono County Thursday night and Friday...
... Light snowfall possible for lower elevations Friday...

For Mono County, high winds, especially along and east of Highway
395, will be followed by snow as a cold front moves through the
region. Between 4 and 10 inches will be possible above 7000 feet,
locally higher near the crest, with up to 3 inches elsewhere.
The snow will be combined with gusty winds late Thursday night
and Friday morning, which could bring areas of low visibility in
blowing snow, especially for wind-prone areas along Highway 395
and in the High Sierra.

For western and west-central Nevada, accumulating snow is possible
late Thursday night and Friday morning. As much as 1 to 3 inches
of snowfall will be possible for the Reno-Sparks, Carson City, and
Minden areas, with up to an inch eastward into west-central
Nevada. Slick and snow covered roads could impact the peak commute
time Friday morning. Localized areas of blowing snow in wind-
prone areas areas could significantly reduce visibilities through
Friday morning.

If you have travel plans in Mono County Thursday afternoon through
Friday, ensure that your vehicle is ready for winter conditions,
including an emergency kit with extra food, water, clothing, and
tire chains if necessary. For the lower elevations of western and
west-central Nevada, be prepared for a much longer than usual
commute Friday morning. Note that a light snowfall can cause some
of the worst commute issues!
