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

* changes... start time moved to noon.

* What... snow expected above 6500 feet. Rain or a mix of rain and
snow will change to all snow below 6500 feet early Saturday
morning. Total snow accumulations of 3 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 noon today 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 can cause 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.

Lake Wind Advisory
Issued: 2:42 AM PST Dec. 13, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Lake Wind Advisory now in effect until 4 am PST Saturday for
Lake Tahoe...

* changes... advisory extended through tonight.

* What... southwest winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.
Waves 2 to 4 feet.

* Where... Lake Tahoe.

* When... until 4 am PST Saturday.

* 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: 4:55 AM PST Dec. 13, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Periods of wet weather will continue through the weekend...

A series of systems will bring periods of rain and snow to the
region into Sunday. There will also be periods of gusty winds
through Saturday, especially along the Highway 395 corridor south
of Bridgeport where winds could periodically gust over 45 mph.

A system today into Saturday morning will bring lowering snow
levels with increasing travel impacts for Sierra passes by this
afternoon and evening.

A colder system is expected late Saturday into Sunday morning
with snow possible down to all valley floors. Light snow will be
possible for many locations; however, we aren't able to pin down
the location for the heaviest snow at this time. Keep in mind
that it doesn't take much snow to bring travel difficulties and
cars could 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 starting Friday afternoon,
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.
Check with caltrans or ndot for the latest travel restrictions
before leaving for your destination.
