... Active weather pattern continues mid-week...

After a break in the weather, expect a return to active weather
for the second half of the week with multiple fast moving systems
pushing across the region.

The first impact will be increasing winds on Wednesday afternoon
and evening. Wind gusts near 50 mph will be possible across the
Sierra and far western Nevada with higher readings along
windprone locations and gusts over 100 mph over the Sierra crest.

This first system has trended drier, but would still impact travel
across the Sierra. Up to a foot of snowfall is possible in the
Sierra with light to moderate rainfall for western Nevada before
snow levels fall to the valley floors by Thursday morning.
Although no significant flooding impacts are expected, rises on
small creeks and streams are still possible.

Subsequent quick moving and colder systems are possible Friday
and Saturday with the potential for a more potent system Sunday
and Monday. Snow levels may start near western Nevada Valley
floors leading to more widespread travel impacts across both the
Sierra and western Nevada. Those with travel plans during this
time frame should continue to monitor the forecast over the
upcoming week.
