316 PM PST Fri Nov 24 2017


* Timing: Winds will increase Saturday afternoon becoming strong
and gusty Saturday night through late Sunday morning.

* Winds: South to Southwest 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 60 mph
possible. Wind prone areas may see gusts up to 70 mph with
Sierra ridge gusts over 100 mph.

* Impacts: Strong cross winds and travel restrictions are
likely to impact high profile vehicles. Aviation impacts are
expected for area airports with hazardous boating conditions
on Lake Tahoe Saturday afternoon through Sunday. Localized
damage to trees and fences may occur along with possible
power outages.


Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. 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.

A potent Pacific storm will move inland this weekend and bring
rain, mountain snow and gusty winds. Travel impacts are likely
Sunday into Monday. Some details follow:

* WINDS: Strong, gusty south to southwest winds are expected this
weekend. Winds will be breezy on Saturday, with periods of
strong winds early Sunday morning through Sunday evening. Gusts
of 60 mph or more are possible along portions of the 395
corridor and Sierra ridge gusts will likely exceed 100 mph.

* PRECIPITATION: Light rain is likely over northeast California
Sunday morning, and will gradually increase as it spreads
southward. The heaviest precipitation is expected late Sunday
afternoon through Sunday night, continuing into Monday morning
south of Highway 50.

* SNOW LEVELS: Starting above 9000 feet Sunday morning, then
falling to near 7000 feet by early Sunday evening in northeast
California, and 7500 to 8500 feet for the Sierra. Snow levels
will then fall quickly behind a cold front late Sunday night,
possibly as low as 4500-5500 feet.

* SNOW AMOUNTS: Initial estimates for accumulations over Sierra
passes are 6 to 12 inches, a few inches around Lake Tahoe, and
light accumulations generally less than 2 inches down to 5500
feet. Be prepared for major travel delays in the Sierra Sunday
night into Monday morning due to slick and snow-covered roads.
