...Travel impacts likely across the Sierra and western Nevada
Wednesday to Friday...
With it being a busy holiday travel period, the anticipated
weather could bring significant impacts to travel in the Sierra.
It is best to have a winter travel kit and plan for potentially
long delays Wednesday-Friday.
Wednesday: First of two storms will bring a period of rain and
snow to the region. Heaviest rain and snow could move through the
region late Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. Best advice
is to travel over the Sierra passes Wednesday morning or early
Thursday Night and Friday: Stronger storm possible with high winds
impacting travel across western Nevada. Periods of heavy rain and
snow possible for the northern Sierra, including the Tahoe Basin
and Carson Pass. Minimal amounts of rain and snow will reach Mono
County. Have an alternate set of travel plans, if possible
consider delaying travel until Saturday.

...Change to Winter Weather Expected for the Holiday Weekend...
A major change in the weather pattern is coming to NorCal this
week which will impact holiday travel. A series of winter like
storms will plow through NorCal later this week bringing rain and
mountain snow to the region. The first system is set to arrive
late Tuesday into Wednesday. Roadways will likely be slick due to
previous stretches of drier weather, so motorists should be
mindful when traveling especially Wednesday into Thursday morning.
As rainfall accumulates over the holiday weekend, ponding water
will be possible where storm drains have been clogged by leaves
and other debris. Debris flows over any of the recent fires will
also become a major concern.
Up in the mountains, accumulating snow is forecast with travel
difficulties likely starting Wednesday afternoon and continuing
through Saturday. Gusty winds and accumulating snow will make for
treacherous conditions over the mountains with whiteout conditions
being possible at the passes Thursday into Friday.
