A very cold and fast moving system will drop out of the north and dump snow in the Sierra and leeward valleys of Nevada. This system will bring much cooler air and very strong winds. I expect about 36 hour period of light to moderate snowfall to fall on the Sierra and Carson Range.
At the peak of the storm which will be Sunday morning here is a look:
This is nothing like what we say in January and February. However, with the much cooler temps I do expect a hefty dumping of much lighter snow than we saw in those storms. Here is a look at the precip forecast:
I think we could be talking about 18-36 inches by Monday for Mt. Rose, heavier amounts on the west side of the lake.
This storm will quickly clear out and temps will rise into the 50's under high pressure by weeks end.
