Good morning everybody! Here is a quick update on the storm that will be impacting us overnight and into Tuesday.
The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Weather Advisory which is in effect from 10:00 this evening to 4:00 Tuesday afternoon.
According to forecasters snow will begin tonight with the heaviest snow anticipated from midnight through noon Tuesday.
Snow accumulations east of Highway 395 are expected to be 2 to 4 inches. West of Highway 395 look for 3 to 6 inches with up to 10 inches possible in the mountains west of Highway 89.
Southerly winds gusting to 25 mph in the valleys, with much stronger gusts of 80 to 100 mph on the ridges, will impact the region beginning tonight.
NWS is expressing a high confidence for significant travel impacts with possible delays and chain controls on area roads… especially highways 395 and 89.
Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during periods of high traffic volume. Be sure to allow extra time to reach your destination. Leave extra space between vehicles since it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.
