Winter weather is returning

January 29, 2014

It’s been a long time since any rain and snow fell in the Reno area, but a pretty good storm is finally coming. The forecast for the next few days is calling for wind, rain, and snow both here in the Truckee Meadows and up in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

If things go as predicted, there will be several inches of new snow up in the mountains and maybe an inch or two in Reno. Taking the kids to one of our nearby snow play areas might actually work out after over a month of no precipitation at all. Skiers and snowboarders could find the resorts around Lake Tahoe, for both downhill skiing and cross-country skiing, with a new lease on life for this lousy season.

Remember, always carry your chains and be prepared for winter driving conditions up in the mountains. The weather can change remarkably fast. Before heading out, make sure your car is in good shape and check highway conditions and the weather forecast.
