Synopsis
Below average temperatures will persist as low pressure remains
over the west. A weak system today will bring gusty winds, choppy
lake conditions, and a few snow showers north of interstate 80.

The next cold front and chance of snow is possible Monday. The
pattern remains active with a potentially stronger storm by
Thursday and Friday.

Short term
No major changes made to the forecast early this morning. Just a
reminder to monitor the forecast through the weekend, especially
if you have travel plans on Monday morning as another pesky
"slider" type storm is on tap for the sierra and western nevada.

Oh, and don't forget to keep an eye on Thursday-Friday too since
another stronger storm will likely disrupt travel for that time
frame.

A quick moving shortwave will brush through nevada today with the
primary impacts being brisk gusty winds and some snow showers for
areas mainly north of interstate 80 and east of highway 95. There
may be a few light snow showers that move across portions of the
sierra this afternoon as well, but generally very light
accumulations are expected. Wind gusts will be between 35 to 45 mph
areawide, with choppy lake conditions likely for pyramid lake and
lake tahoe. Lake wind advisories are in effect today to highlight
these hazardous boating conditions.

So here we are once again with a "slider" in the forecast for a
Monday morning commute. I wish that I could tell you that this storm
is a slam dunk forecast, but alas that just isn't how "slider"
storms operate. For the moment, the storm still looks promising
for snow across the sierra and western nevada for Monday. There is
a strong cold front with the system as well as an area of upper
level divergence across the tahoe basin and into the i80 corridor
would allow for decent snowfall potential. The fly in the
ointment continues to be the concerns associated with the strength
and the ne-sw orientation of the backside jet on this storm,
which would tend to split the storm and leave much of the sierra
and western nevada with little to no snowfall. Have maintained the
conservative approach with this storm and the snowfall totals. We
can't emphasize enough that if you have travel plans Monday, we
highly recommend that you keep up with the latest area forecast
discussion as this storm has the potential to be a pretty
significant travel headache. -edan

Long term Tuesday through Friday...

Tuesday could feature some leftover wrap-around snow showers south
of highway 50 behind Monday's system. The chances were kept fairly
low as the system could drop as far west as the southern california
coast which would keep most leftover showers south and west of mono
and mineral counties. In any case, Tuesday will be another much
below normal temperature day.

For Tuesday night and Wednesday, low chances for precipitation
remain for some areas (generally north of i-80) as a weak wave
slides over central and eastern oregon. Model simulations
have trended north and east with this wave so impacts are
expected to be minimal.

Thursday and Friday, attention turns to a cold and much stronger
trough dropping south over the eastern pacific. Given its large size
and position of the very cold air pool (-14c to -18c at 700 mb) over
the pacific, the system will have a much better chance to tap
moisture and send it into the sierra and western nevada. In
addition, simulations show a strong cold front with the low. With
all this in mind, chances for substantial sierra snowfall and at
least some snow in western nevada (possibly briefly mixing with
rain) are increasing for next Thursday and Friday, with travel
impacts from snow likely in the sierra and possible in western
nevada. Time of day and intensity of precipitation are getting more
crucial this late in the winter season so the details of travel
impacts are too far out to discern, especially for the lower
elevations. -snyder hohmann

Aviation
Gusty west to northwest winds across the ridges will work down to
lower elevations by this afternoon and increase turbulence
east of the sierra as a shortwave system passes just to our north.

Lower elevations are expected to see gusts 25-35 kts with ridge
gusts approaching 75 kts.

A few snow showers are possible today, mainly north of interstate
80 and east of fallon. CIGS vis mainlyVFR, although for brief
periods of MVFR with terrain obscuration possible with showers
north of i-80. Hohmann snyder
