A very strong cold front will move through the Sierra and western
Nevada Tuesday night into Wednesday. Likely impacts from this storm
will be: very strong potentially damaging winds, widespread snow
down to all valley floors, followed by very cold temperatures.

* Winds are forecast to become very strong with damaging wind
gusts possible. Winds in western Nevada could reach into the 50
to 60 mph range with wind prone areas potentially exceeding 75
mph. The duration of the strongest winds is expected to be
relatively short, around 3 to 6 hours. Due to the timing of the
winds occurring overnight, the wind gusts could be especially
erratic with near calm conditions one minute and very strong
wind gusts the next. Strong wind shear and turbulence is likely
ahead of the front.

* Snow is expected to be an intense short duration event with snow
falling at all elevations, even 'down here' in Reno. Current
expectations is for 1-2 inches of snowfall in the valleys of
western Nevada with most of it likely falling in 1-2 hours along
the front. Recent simulations have shifted the system westward
increasing the potential snow accumulation in the Sierra with
the current forecast for 3 to 6 inches of snow. Timing of this
snowfall will likely have impacts on the Wednesday morning

* Very cold air behind the front will bring the coldest
temperatures of the season. By Thursday, high temperatures in
western Nevada will not get out of the 30s and depending on
snowfall may only be around freezing. Overnight lows will drop
into the teens and single digits.
