The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a special weather bulletin warning area resident to expect periods of snow and pellet showers along with a slight
chance for thunderstorms through Tuesday. The best chance for accumulating snow and periods of slick, slushy roads through Tuesday will be in the mountains, especially overnight through mid-morning, but possibly at other times if heavy, persistent snow showers develop.
Here on the valley floor only wet roads are expected.
As there may be travel restrictions due to snow in the higher elevations, check road conditions with CALTRANS and NDOT before you go.
Cold the next several mornings with temperatures 15-25 degrees below normal. While there is still some uncertainty due to winds and cloud cover, forecasters say it is likely we will have frost and freeze concerns through Wednesday morning even in urban areas. Keep an eye on irrigation and gardens for the next several nights.
