Special Weather Statement
Issued: 10:10 PM Dec. 12, 2019 – National Weather Service
...Periods of wet weather will continue through the weekend...

A series of systems will bring additional rain and snow to the
region through Sunday. Gusty winds will continue tonight into
Friday morning with only light showers for the Sierra.

A colder system late Friday morning into Saturday morning will
bring lowering snow levels with increasing travel impacts for
Sierra passes. Mainly rain is expected for western Nevada. This is
the part of the storm that will bring the heaviest rain and snow
totals but it is still modest by Sierra standards. Snow totals in
the northern Sierra above 7000 feet are in the 6 to 12 inch range,
locally higher, with up to 3 inches at Lake Tahoe level. Farther
south into Mono County, 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible for the
high Sierra with a dusting up to 2 inches for communities and
passes along US-395. For northeast California, lower liquid totals
along with high snow levels will limit snow accumulation. Passes
west of Susanville may see a couple inches of snowfall with a
dusting possible for valleys.

The coldest system is expected by Saturday afternoon or early
evening into Sunday morning with snow possible down to all valley
floors. Snow totals north of Highway 50 will range from a dusting
to 6 inches, even into western Nevada. However, we aren't able to
pin down the location for the heaviest snows at this time. Keep
in mind that it doesn't take much snow to bring travel
difficulties and cars will pack down light snow amounts into ice.

Bottom line: Travel is likely to be difficult for weekend travel
and ski traffic crossing over the Sierra, with slick conditions
possible for portions of western Nevada Saturday night into Sunday.
Make sure you are ready for winter driving conditions and allow
extra time to reach your destination.
