NWS Weather Bulletin: Series of Storms to Bring Snow Beginning Sunday Night

Forecasters at the National Weather Service’s Reno office are expecting snow to fall in Susanville and the Honey Lake Valley overnight and into Monday, with a stronger Pacific storm arriving by week’s end.

A Winter Weather Advisory, in effect from 10:00 Sunday evening until 4:00p.m., Monday,  warns residents of Surprise Valley, Lassen County, Eastern Plumas County, Eastern Sierra County and Northern Washoe County to expect snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, with localized amounts up to 8 inches west of Highway 395.

Plan on slippery road conditions, including the Monday morning commute. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.

According to the NWS an active weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week as two storm systems affect the Sierra and western Nevada.

The first storm will bring snow to far northeast California by late tonight, then spread south and east overnight into Monday.

Winter Weather advisories are in effect for us here in northeast California, along with northwest Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Area, where snowfall amounts are most likely to range from several inches up to 1 foot.

Across lower elevations, roads could become icy and dangerous by Monday evening as temperatures drop below freezing.

For Thursday and Friday, a stronger Pacific storm will arrive with gusty winds, rain and snow. Significant snowfall is likely in the Sierra Thursday into Friday night. Rain and snow are likely in Western Nevada with some snow accumulation possible late Thursday night into Friday on the valley floors. Details on snowfall will become clearer as we get closer to the event so be sure to check back each day for updated information on this developing storm.
