Message summary: ...strong winds this weekend with snow over the passes by late sunday...
A potent pacific storm will move inland this weekend and bring rain, mountain snow and gusty winds. The winds will begin saturday afternoon and continue through sunday night. Precipitation will begin as rain, even at the passes, as snow levels start high. Snow levels will begin to fall sunday with snow over the passes possible by sunset sunday. Expect holiday weekend travel impacts due to winds and snow over the passes. Some details follow:
* winds: strong, gusty southwest winds are expected this weekend. Winds will be breezy on saturday and then increase significantly overnight into sunday afternoon. While it is too early to estimate peak gusts, gusts of 60 mph or more are possible along portions of the 395 corridor and sierra ridge gusts will likely exceed 100 mph.
* precipitation: light rain is likely over the mountains by saturday evening north of i-80, gradually spread southward into sunday evening. Snow levels will also gradually fall during this time before crashing sunday night as a strong cold front moves through. The precipitation will end monday morning behind the front.
* snow levels: starting at near 9000 feet saturday afternoon. They will fall to 5500 feet for lassen county, 7000 feet for the tahoe basin, and 8000 feet for mono county by late sunday afternoon. Snow levels will crash sunday night and fall to near the lower valley floors as the precipitation ends. While it is too early to predict snowfall amounts, moderate accumulations are likely for the sierra passes with light accumulations possible as low as 4500 feet. Be prepared for major travel delays over sierra passes due to slick and snow-covered roads.
