Watches & Warnings

Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 10:06 AM PST Dec. 12, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory now in effect from 10 am Friday to
10 am PST Saturday above 6500 feet...

* changes... started earlier at 10 am and increased amounts.

* What... snow expected above 6500 feet. Rain will change to snow
below 6500 feet Friday evening. Total snow accumulations of 4 to
8 inches between 6500 and 7000 feet, with 6 to 12 inches above
7000 feet. Local amounts to 18 inches possible at the Sierra
crest. Up to 3 inches is possible below 6500 feet.

* Where... greater Lake Tahoe area.

* When... from 10 am Friday to 10 am PST Saturday.

* Impacts... plan on slippery Road conditions and much longer
travel times over the Sierra. The hazardous conditions could
impact those traveling into the Tahoe basin for the start of
the weekend.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during
periods of high traffic volume. Be sure to allow extra time to
reach your destination. Leave extra space between vehicles since
it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.

The latest Road conditions can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.

Lake Wind Advisory
Issued: 3:11 PM PST Dec. 12, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Lake Wind Advisory in effect until 4 PM PST Friday for Lake
Tahoe...

* what... southwest winds 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.
Waves 2 to 4 feet.

* Where... Lake Tahoe.

* When... until 4 PM PST Friday.

* Impacts... 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: 2:09 PM PST 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.
