Nevada– A stormy weather pattern is brewing for the Sierra Nevada, bringing rain showers to the valleys and significant snowfall to the peaks from Monday through Wednesday. Residents should be prepared for winter driving conditions, particularly on mountain passes.

Rain and Snow: The storm is expected to impact the region from Monday to Wednesday. Valleys will experience rain showers, while elevations above 8,000 feet can expect snowfall, with accumulations of 1 to 2 feet possible along the Sierra mountain tops.

Travel Advisory: Winter driving conditions, including slick roads, reduced visibility, and potential closures of mountain passes, are likely, especially during the night and morning hours. Please exercise caution while traveling and be prepared for delays.

Clear Skies Ahead: The storm is expected to clear by Thursday, with good travel weather expected for Friday and the weekend. Christmas cheer will arrive with sunshine and dry conditions, with no chain controls anticipated for the holiday weekend and much of next week.

  • Be aware of your surroundings and watch for falling ice or debris from trees.
