MORE SNOW THIS WEEK: The National Weather Service (NWS) in Reno says there’s a chance of rain or snow every day between Tuesday and the weekend,
“A growing number of simulations are showing a warmer weather system reaching the Sierra by Saturday with rain/snow lines above 6,000 feet,” the NWS reports. “Though there are simulations that build a ridge over the western US, current guidance favors any snow impacts to the Sierra above 6,000 feet.”
Tuesday will be mostly sunny, with highs around 33. Winds will be 5 to 10 mph, with 25 mph gusts possible. There’s a chance of snow showers in the evening, when lows will dip to 16.
There’s a 20% chance of snow showers Wednesday. Another 1 to 2 inches of accumulation is possible Thursday, with an additional inch that night. Scattered showers are forecast Friday morning, followed by rain and snow showers from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
