Watches & Warnings

Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 1:50 PM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from 4 PM Wednesday
to 4 am PST Thursday...

* timing: snow will begin around mid day Wednesday with rates
increasing in the afternoon. Moderate snowfall will continue
through early Thursday morning.

* Snow accumulations: 8 to 16 inches above 7000 feet with 3 to 8
inches at Lake Tahoe level.

* Winds: southwest 15 to 20 mph with gusts 30 to 45 mph.

* Snow levels: beginning around 6500 feet early Wednesday
afternoon dropping to Sierra Valley floors by 6 PM.

* Wave heights on lake tahoe: 1 to 3 feet in the morning with
heights 2 to 4 feet in the afternoon. Highest waves will be
from mid lake to northeastern shores.

* Impacts: wind driven snow will cause whiteout conditions at
times. Expect difficult travel with slick roads around the
Tahoe basin. Avalanche danger will increase due to heavier...
wet snow. Small boats, kayaks and paddle boards will be
prone to capsizing and should remain off lake waters until
conditions improve.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during
periods of high traffic volume. Winds will create periods of
whiteout conditions making travel difficult at times. Be sure to
allow extra time to reach your destination. Leave extra space
between vehicles since it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.





Lake Wind Advisory
Issued: 1:50 PM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Lake Wind Advisory remains in effect from 10 am to 4 PM PST
Wednesday for Lake Tahoe...

* winds: southwest 10 to 15 mph with gusts 30 mph in the
morning... increasing 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 45 mph in
the afternoon.

* Wave heights: 1 to 3 feet in the morning with heights 2 to 4
feet in the afternoon. Highest waves will be from mid lake
to northeastern shores.

* Small boats, kayaks and paddle boards will be prone to
capsizing and should remain off lake waters until conditions
improve.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Check lake conditions before heading out and be prepared for a
sudden increase in winds and wave heights. Consider postponing
boating activities on the lake until a day with less wind.

Special Statement
Issued: 1:51 PM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... 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.
