Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:56 PM PST Jan. 14, 2019 – National Weather Service


... Potential major winter storm late Wednesday through Thursday...

A series of storms will move through the region this week with the
strongest storm impacting the region late Wednesday through Thursday.
Periods of rain and snow are expected in the lower elevations of
northeast California and western Nevada Wednesday through
Thursday.

Lower valleys: a few snow showers are expected Tuesday with
little to no accumulation for western Nevada. Keep in mind that
even minor accumulations can bring traffic concerns. Some
locations could see problematic commutes Tuesday morning and
evening, while others will remain free of snow. Snow will change
to rain by Wednesday. Rain late Wednesday and Thursday may produce
amounts up to 1 inch.

Foothills and Virginia city: accumulations could be non-trivial on
Thursday for the north valleys of Reno, foothills west of Highway 395,
and for Virginia City. Currently, a few inches of snowfall is possible
for these locations. Forecast certainty for these locations is lower
than average as it will depend on how fast snow levels fall Thursday.

Significant impacts are expected in the Sierra with Road closures possible
Tuesday night through Thursday. There is the potential for moderate
impacts at times down to around 5000 feet in western Nevada, especially
Thursday. If you have travel plans pay attention to the forecast
and have contingency plans in place.
