NWS Weather Bulletin: Big Change in the Weather Begins Today

Forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Reno are warning residents to prepare for a big change to our weather pattern here in northeastern California as a strong cold front pushes through the Sierra and western Nevada today bringing gusty winds, much colder temperatures and chances for rain and snow showers.

According to the NWS this storm appears to herald in a pattern that may possibly stick around through much of November, with the potential for lingering cold temperatures and, perhaps, additional chances for rain and snow.

Winds will increase significantly today with a quick burst of winds that may produce areas of blowing dust, choppy lake conditions, as well as a brief period of fire weather concerns.

Afternoon temperatures will drop significantly from now through Saturday, with western Nevada and Sierra valleys in the mid 40s/50s.

Overnight lows will drop back below freezing for many areas as well. If you turned your sprinklers back on, now is the time to call it for the season since the cold will linger on into the coming weeks.

While rain and snow chances are still pretty low, the simulations have trended a touch wetter each day, especially for the Sierra. If you haven’t put that winter travel kit in your car, then now is the time make it happen.

It’s that time of the year where conditions can rapidly change along the Sierra passes, so being in tune with all the weather updates as well as Caltrans and NDOT will save you a lot of headaches.
