Special Weather Statement
Issued: 10:03 AM Oct. 20, 2021 – National Weather Service
...Active Weather Pattern Continues...

Several weather systems will impact the eastern Sierra and western
Nevada through the end of the week and into early next week.

Today's system is departing, but there will be a few lingering
showers along the western slopes of the Sierra and into
northeastern California. Be prepared for travel restrictions due
to gusty winds and some delays in driving over the high Sierra
passes through midday.

* Winds...Gusts of 30 to 45 mph are possible through late
Wednesday morning. The strongest winds should occur early
Wednesday morning with bumpy flights in and out of the region.

* Rain and Snow...Expect some light rain and snow in the northern
Sierra Sierra through Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations are
expected to be less than an inch or two but even wet roads will
slow travel over the passes. Little to no rain and snow will
affect western Nevada and the eastern Sierra.

* More Storms In the Queue...After a fairly modest system Friday,
a potentially much stronger system is forecast for Sunday and
Monday. Warm, moist air mass will keep snow levels around 7000
to 8000 feet with this storm during the heaviest precipitation.
Strong winds, heavy snowfall in the high Sierra, and periods of
heavy rainfall are possible.

* Sunday - Monday Storm: Increasing confidence for periods of
heavy rain, even in the mountains: possible flood impacts on
burn areas, urban flooding in poor drainage spots, and rock
slides in steep terrain. Saturday morning may be a good day to
clean those drains and gutters ahead of the storm.
