... Snow will create slick driving conditions Monday...

A strong cold front moving through the region this afternoon may
create slick driving conditions for the Sierra and western Nevada
tonight through Monday morning.

In the Sierra snow accumulations of a few inches at all
elevations with up to 5-8 inches along the higher passes will
bring winter driving conditions. You should anticipate travel
restrictions and delays the remainder of today and tonight in the
Sierra.

In western Nevada, snow showers with light accumulations of around
0.5-1.0" of snow are possible with up to 2 inches in some foothill
locations.

A flash freeze will also be possible tonight where a small amount
of snow falls, melts as it hits warmer ground surfaces, and then
refreezes when the temperatures fall. The most likely areas for
flash freeze will be in the lower valleys in western and west-
central Nevada where surface and Road temperatures have remained
warm. Keep in mind, it only takes 0.01 of precipitation flash
freezing on Road surfaces to make for hazardous driving
conditions, and it is nearly impossible to say exactly where this
might happen.

Lake effect snow bands are possible on the southern end of Tahoe and
pyramid Monday morning through late afternoon. This may lead to
localized banding of higher snow totals and create additional
travel headaches.

So the best advice is, if you see precipitation falling or
wet/snowy roads this afternoon through Monday be extra cautious
since they will likely be even more slippery than usual.
