... Dangerous snow squalls will affect Plumas... Mono... alpine...
Placer... El Dorado... Sierra... Nevada... southern Washoe... and Douglas
counties and western Carson City...

At 137 PM PDT, dangerous snow squalls were advancing towards the
Sierra from as far north as Sierraville to as far south as Mammoth
Mountain. These strong convective snow squalls will produce areas of
near zero visibility, occasional lightning, and extreme snowfall
rates. Travelers on Sierra roadways, caltrans/ndot employees, and
outdoor enthusiasts should be aware of very rapidly deteriorating
conditions over the next couple of hours.

Use extra caution if you must travel into the Sierra over the next
several hours. Consider delaying travel until the heavier snow
squalls have exited the region. Near zero visibility will make
roads almost impassable.
