Statement as of 6:05 PM PST on January 16, 2018

Expires 10:00 PM EST on January 18, 2018


... High wind watch remains in effect from Thursday morning
through Thursday evening...

* timing: south to southwest winds will begin increasing early
Thursday morning ahead of a strong cold front. Winds will peak
Thursday afternoon and early evening before decreasing behind
the front.

* Winds: south to southwest 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 65 mph
possible. Wind-prone areas such as I-580 south of Reno and
Highway 395 near Stead and Cold Springs could see gusts 65 to
75 mph.

* Impacts: dangerous cross-wind conditions, especially for high
profile vehicles, which could cause loss of vehicle control.

restrictions are likely for high-profile vehicles. Possible
damage to trees and powerlines.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture and trash cans before winds increase. 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.

Be prepared to take alternate routes if roads are closed due to
high winds, particularly if you plan on traveling in a high-
profile vehicle. Snow will follow the winds; see the Special
Weather Statement for more details.

Special Statement

Statement as of 2:25 AM PST on January 17, 2018

Expires 7:00 PM EST on January 17, 2018


... 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.
Snow will combine with gusty winds late Thursday night and Friday
morning to produce 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 locations 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 long, slow commute on Friday
morning. Note that even a light snowfall can cause some of the
worst commute issues!
