Watches & Warnings

Wind Advisory
Issued: 2:06 PM PST Feb. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PST this evening...

* timing: the strongest wind gusts were likely earlier today,
however, strong and gusty winds will continue into early
evening.

* Winds: southwest to west 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph.
Localized gusts to 65 mph in wind prone locations.

* Impacts: expect strong cross winds along some highways
particularly along I-580, Highway 395, CA 89 and Highway 95.
Roads may be closed to high profile vehicles at times.
Blowing dust will degrade air quality and may create sudden
reductions in visibility.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, Holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.





Special Statement
Issued: 2:02 PM PST Feb. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Snow will create slick driving conditions Monday...

A strong cold front moving through the region this afternoon may
create slick driving conditions for the Sierra and western Nevada
tonight through Monday morning.

In the Sierra snow accumulations of a few inches at all
elevations with up to 5-8 inches along the higher passes will
bring winter driving conditions. You should anticipate travel
restrictions and delays the remainder of today and tonight in the
Sierra.

In western Nevada, snow showers with light accumulations of around
0.5-1.0" of snow are possible with up to 2 inches in some foothill
locations.

A flash freeze will also be possible tonight where a small amount
of snow falls, melts as it hits warmer ground surfaces, and then
refreezes when the temperatures fall. The most likely areas for
flash freeze will be in the lower valleys in western and west-
central Nevada where surface and Road temperatures have remained
warm. Keep in mind, it only takes 0.01 of precipitation flash
freezing on Road surfaces to make for hazardous driving
conditions, and it is nearly impossible to say exactly where this
might happen.

Lake effect snow bands are possible on the southern end of Tahoe and
pyramid Monday morning through late afternoon. This may lead to
localized banding of higher snow totals and create additional
travel headaches.

So the best advice is, if you see precipitation falling or
wet/snowy roads this afternoon through Monday be extra cautious
since they will likely be even more slippery than usual.

... Snow will create slick driving conditions Monday...

A strong fast moving cold front will move through the region
during the day today with slick driving conditions likely in the
Sierra and possible throughout the rest of the region.

In the Sierra snow accumulations of a few inches at all
elevations with up to 5-8 inches along the higher passes will
bring back winter driving conditions to the Sierra. You should
anticipate travel restrictions and delays today and tonight in
the Sierra.

In western Nevada, snow showers with light accumulations of snow
around 0.5-1.0" of snow are possible with up to 2 inches in some
foothill locations.

A flash freeze will also be possible today where a small amount
of snow falls, melts as it hits warmer ground surfaces, and then
refreezes when the temperatures fall. The most likely areas for
flash freeze will be in the lower valleys in western and west-
central Nevada where the temperatures are expected to rise to the
mid 40s today before cold front arrives. Keep in mind, it only
takes 0.01 of precipitation flash freezing to the Road to make for
hazardous driving conditions, and it is nearly impossible to say
exactly where this might happen.

So the best advice is, if you see precipitation falling or
wet/snowy roads today be extra cautious since they could be even
slipperier than usual.
