Winter storm headed for Reno and Lake Tahoe

November 7, 2012

According to the National Weather Service in Reno, a winter storm will be arriving in our area starting Wednesday night and continuing into Saturday. Some snow may make it over the mountains to the Truckee Meadows, but probably not enough to cause trouble. Temperatures, however, are going to plummet. We may not reach 40 during the day and nights will be well below freezing.

Up in the Sierra Nevada around Lake Tahoe, real winter weather is forecast to drop several inches of snow at lake level and even more up higher. It will be much the same for nearby places like Truckee.

If you must travel in the mountains over the next few days, take the chains and be prepared for winter driving conditions. The roads will be slick and gusty winds could kick up the snow and reduce visibility. Before departing from the Reno area, be sure to check highway conditions over the passes to see what you are likely to encounter. Here are links to highway conditions reports for major mountain roads in the Reno area…

Sunny skies will be back by Veterans Day on Sunday, November 11. That’s good news for the annual Reno Veterans Day Parade and the thousands of citizens who turn out to cheer and support a great group of Americans – our military veterans.
