Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 3:43 AM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Weather
Advisory for moderate snow, which is 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: 6 to 11 inches above 7000 feet with 3 to 6
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: 3:39 AM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a lake Wind
Advisory for Lake Tahoe, which is in effect from 10 am to 4 PM
PST Wednesday... a Winter Weather Advisory will Carry Lake wind
conditions after 4 PM.

* 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: 3:55 AM PST Jan. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Active weather pattern returns mid-week...

After a break in the weather, expect a return to active weather
for the second half of the week with multiple fast moving systems
pushing across the region.

The first impact will be increasing winds on Wednesday afternoon
and evening. Wind gusts near 40 mph will be possible across the
Sierra and far western Nevada with higher gusts in wind prone
locations. Gusts of 80 to 100 mph are possible over the Sierra
crest.

This first system has trended drier, but will still impact travel
across the Sierra. As much as a foot 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.

Subsequent quick moving and colder systems 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. Anyone with travel
plans during this time frame should continue to monitor the
forecast over the upcoming week.
