…Winter Storm Possible for Thanksgiving Week…

A potent winter storm is becoming more likely for Thanksgiving
Week. Heavy snow is probable for the Sierra starting late Tuesday
afternoon and through the day Wednesday. This is a cold storm and
will lower snow levels to all valley floors by Tuesday night with
accumulating snows possible.

Snow levels will fall to near 2000 feet by Tuesday night making
slick and snowy road conditions possible all the way from western
Nevada to the western foothills of the Sierra. Slow and difficult
travel conditions should be expected on late Tuesday into

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is already one of the busiest
travel days of the year, and with heavy snow expected for the
Sierra and western Nevada, travel impacts will be significant.
Please plan your holiday travel accordingly. If you have travel
coming up next week, make sure to prepare your vehicle for winter
travel conditions.
