Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Reno NV 308 PM PDT Sat Apr 4 2020

SYNOPSIS.

Two storms will bring winter-like weather back to northeast California, the Sierra, and western Nevada through early next week. Expect gusty winds through Sunday, with heavy mountain snow, chances for valley rain and snow, and cooling temperatures. Low pressure is expected to exit into the Desert Southwest for the second half of next week for drying and warming conditions.

SHORT TERM.

The main highlight for today's forecast is increasing chances for accumulating snow Sunday night and early Monday on far western NV valley floors. Otherwise, we are on track for a significant late season snowfall in the Sierra and above 5000 feet west of Susanville (see the winter storm warnings for the expected amounts), with strong, gusty winds for portions of western/west- central Nevada and the Sierra Front in Mono County through Sunday.

The first system affecting the region through early next week is moving into northern California this afternoon. The system is bringing increasing precipitation rates to northeast CA and the Sierra north of about Highway 50, with snow levels currently around 5500 to 6000 feet. As expected so far, the snow in the Sierra up into northeast CA is not accumulating on roads (they are just wet). and may not do so until closer to sunset.

Precipitation intensities are expected to decrease in the Sierra and across northeast CA this evening behind today's wave, although snow showers are expected to continue overnight with moist upslope flow ahead of the next, more potent wave set to arrive Sunday morning. The threat for slick, lightly snow-covered roads will increase after around 5-7 PM; however, the worst deterioration in travel conditions is not expected until late tonight into Sunday morning as snowfall rates increase again ahead of the next system. Once travel conditions deteriorate in the Tahoe area Sierra and northward into northeast CA (generally above 5000 feet), they may stay that way until Monday when snowfall tapers off. Farther south into Mono County, expect the main travel impacts to Highway 395 to wait until Sunday afternoon or evening when snowfall rates increase as the main area of moisture transport reaches that area.

For western NV through Sunday, the main features will be gusty winds reaching 30-50 mph, highest in wind-prone areas along Highway 395 and Highway 95 near Walker Lake (likely Sunday), with rain and snow developing Sunday. Rain and snow will begin impinging on western NV Sunday morning before working its way out into the Basin and Range Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. A light snowfall will be possible above 5500 feet in western NV on Sunday; however, would not expect roads to be impacted until Sunday night.

Sunday night and Monday morning, attention turns to the potential for accumulating snowfall out into the valleys of far western Nevada. The snowfall potential will greatly rely on exactly where a cold front lays up in western Nevada Sunday night and Monday as an upper low drops slowly south along the California coast; therefore, uncertainty remains at this time. However, the NBM indicates a medium chance for 2 or more inches of snowfall from Carson City south to Minden-Gardnerville through Monday morning so confidence is gradually increasing. This does make sense from a pattern recognition standpoint given the deep southerly flow which tends to favor areas south of Highway 50. With all this in mind, be prepared for a snowy morning Monday in far western NV if you need to venture out. -Snyder

LONG TERM. Tuesday to Saturday .

A slow moving upper low will continue to drop south along the southern California coastline before shifting inland mid-week. This will place the Sierra and much of Nevada on the north side of the low leaving us with cool and showery conditions through Wednesday.

Bands of rain, snow, and graupel showers along with isolated thunder are possible as far north as I-80 on Tuesday before shifting across southern Mono and Mineral counties on Wednesday. Most showers should move out by Thursday as a shift in the weather arrives with upper level ridging beginning to build across the region.

The building ridge will yield a drier and warmer pattern at least for the weekend as high temperatures warm from near average mid-week to potentially 10 degrees above season average by Friday. This may allow high temperatures to reach into the low 70s across western Nevada and near 60 across Sierra valleys. Fuentes

AVIATION.

Rain and snow has moved into northeast CA and the Tahoe Basin with MVFR/IFR conditions and higher terrain obscuration. Limited snowfall accumulations are expected on runways until after sunset. Snow showers likely to persist in the Sierra tonight with a few inches of accumulation possible on runways and elevated surface.

Stronger system arrives early Sunday with burst of heavy precipitation in the Sierra and lighter precipitation pushing across the Sierra into western NV. IFR/LIFR conditions in heavy rain/snow in the Sierra with MVFR across far western NV, with higher CIGS likely out in west-central NV until late in the day or overnight into Monday. Several inches to locally as high as 12 inches of heavy wet snow for the Sierra terminals by Sunday Night/Monday AM.

Across western NV, snow will be limited to areas above 5000-5500 feet Sunday and then mainly on unpaved surfaces. However, some accumulations below 5000 feet become possible late Sunday night into Monday morning as a cold front hangs up over the area. Currently the highest valley snowfall potential is from KCXP south to KMEV. Farther east into west-central NV, temperatures are expected to remain too warm for accumulations. -Snyder/Brong
