Cold Slider to Produce Cold, Not Much Snow; Pattern Change 2nd Week in March?

A cold slider will slip down the leeward side of the Sierra and could produce more snow for the Nevada valleys than the Western Crest of the Sierra. I guess at this point we should be happy with any precipitation. We see this storm coming in late Saturday into Sunday. By Monday afternoon temperatures will recover and become seasonal to above average moving forward.

We are seeing at least the possibility of a pattern change around the 10th of March as a much larger storm could effect the area:

We are still a long way out on this one, but there could be a last ditch effort for winter to reappear in the mountains of Lake Tahoe.
