Another Winter Storm set to impact the Sierra


    2019 has started off with very active weather here across Northern Nevada and the Sierra!

    A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued starting at 1:00 am through 9:00 pm today.


    What to expect

    • Snow level is expected to be above 7,000 feet, but come down to lake level as the storm progresses into Wednesday
    • 6 -12 inches of snow around Lake Tahoe will be possible above 7,000 feet and west of Highway 89
    • Localized areas along the Western Crest could see up to 2 feet of snow
    • Up to 3 inches of new snow possible down to Lake level
    • Travel impacts likely over mountain passes

    This storm is nowhere near as potent as the most recent storm, but it is safe to say that there will be travel delays

    What about the valley?

    Temperatures in the valley are going to be on the warm side so only rain and really not that much of it. Only 1/10 of an inch is expected due to dynamics of this storm causing the valleys to get "shadowed out." Light rain showers remain possible for the early morning commute.

    Stay tuned with you Weather Authority team for real time updates.
