... Winter weather arrives this week...

Dry and mild weather will be replaced by a more typical January
weather pattern with cold temperatures and snow later this week.

Just ahead of this colder weather pattern, a weak and fast moving
storm system will bring light rain and high elevation snow to the
region late tonight through Tuesday. Snow accumulations will
generally be limited to areas near the Sierra above 7000 feet,
with up to 4 inches possible.

The stronger and colder storm arrives Thursday and continues
through Friday with strong winds, rain, and snow. Strong gusty winds
will develop Thursday with gusts above 50 mph possible in lower
elevations, while Sierra ridge gusts could exceed 100 mph. Rain
and high elevation snow begin on Thursday. Snow levels will begin
around 7000 feet, then drop to all valley floors Thursday night
through Friday.

Heavy snowfall and poor visibility are likely for travel and
outdoor activity, especially in the Sierra. Snowfall totals may
exceed 1 to 2 feet above 7000 feet, with several inches up to 1
foot possible for valleys near the Sierra and Lake Tahoe, and in
far western Nevada down to near 5500 feet. For lower elevations of
eastern California and western Nevada, accumulating snow is
possible Thursday night and Friday. Slick and snow covered roads
could impact the peak commute times Thursday evening through
Friday.

If you have travel plans in the mountains Thursday-Friday, ensure
that your vehicle is ready for winter conditions, including an
emergency kit with extra food, water, clothing, and tire chains if
necessary.
