... 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!

... Winter weather arrives this week...

The stronger and colder storm arrives Thursday and continues
through Friday with strong winds, rain, and snow. Strong gusty winds
will develop Thursday with gusts above 50 mph possible in lower
elevations, while Sierra ridge gusts could exceed 100 mph. Rain
and high elevation snow begin on Thursday. Snow levels will begin
around 7000 feet, then drop to all valley floors Thursday night
through Friday.

Heavy snowfall and poor visibility are likely for travel and
outdoor activity, especially in the Sierra. Snowfall totals may
exceed 1 to 2 feet above 7000 feet, with several inches up to 1
foot possible for valleys near the Sierra and Lake Tahoe, and in
far western Nevada down to near 5500 feet. For lower elevations of
eastern California and western Nevada, accumulating snow is
possible Thursday night and Friday. Slick and snow covered roads
could impact the peak commute times, especially Friday morning.

If you have travel plans in the mountains Thursday-Friday, ensure
that your vehicle is ready for winter conditions, including an
emergency kit with extra food, water, clothing, and tire chains if
necessary.
