Winter is back – big storm on the way

March 15, 2012

Stay safe and informed when you must travel in winter conditions… Check Highway Conditions and the Weather Forecast before you go.

It’s getting late in the season for significant storms, but the one due to hit us this weekend looks like it’s going to be a big one. We’ve already experienced the prelude with a day of high winds earlier in the week. According to the National Weather Service, the next phase will come in on Friday, bringing up to 4 feet of snow to the high Sierra and as much as a couple of feet around Lake Tahoe. Depending on how the storm develops, either heavy rain or snow will drop down to the valley floors in western Nevada (that’s us) Friday night and into Saturday. With any kind of luck, we’ll get enough snow up high to add to the meager snow pack.

If you need to get over the hill into California, carry your chains and be prepared for winter driving conditions. Before heading out, make sure your car is in good shape and check highway conditions and the weather forecast.
