Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 1:53 PM PDT Mar. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Colder storm to impact travel this evening through Saturday
morning...

A colder Spring storm is moving into the Sierra and northeastern
California this afternoon, with the peak intensity expected this
evening through Saturday morning. Several inches of snow are
possible tonight into Saturday morning in the Sierra. By early
Saturday morning, we could see a couple inches of snow in western
Nevada foothill locations, including Virginia City and The
Highlands. Additional showers will continue throughout the day on
Saturday, but warmer roads will limit chances for snow
accumulation.

Snow levels will fall to around 4500 feet in northeast California,
5000 feet in the Tahoe basin and along the I-80 corridor, and
5500 feet farther south into Mono and Mineral counties. Rain is
likely below these elevations, though amounts will be limited due
to the speed of the system.

Anyone with travel plans over the Sierra this evening through
Saturday morning should be prepared for longer drive times along
with likely chain controls. Driving conditions will improve during
the day Saturday, with travel expected to be good through Sunday.

Additional wet and windy weather is looking likely starting
Monday, possibly lasting through the middle or end of next week.
