... Active weather pattern this week...

After a break in the weather, expect a return to active weather
starting tomorrow with multiple systems pushing across the Sierra
and western Nevada.

The first impact will be increasing winds on Wednesday afternoon
and evening. Wind gusts near 45 mph will be possible across the
region with higher gusts up to 60 mph in wind prone locations.
Gusts of 80 to 120 mph are possible over the Sierra crest.
Aviation impacts are likely Wednesday with a high potential for
low level wind shear and turbulence.

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

Two more quick moving and colder storms are possible Friday
through early Saturday and again Sunday into Monday. The Sunday
storm has the potential to be the strongest storm in this series.
Snow levels are likely to start near western Nevada Valley floors
in each of these storms leading to more widespread travel impacts
across both the Sierra and western Nevada.

Bottom line: keep an eye on the forecast through the week. Travel
impacts will range from driving issues in the Sierra (and
potentially down into western nevada) to aviation turbulence from
Wednesday through possibly next Monday.
