The early morning commute could get a little slick as a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 8 am Tuesday. These early season winter storms are tough to predict in terms of how much snow will accumulate because the ground is still quite warm, but the early morning commute could be a little dicey as a couple of inches of accumulation are a possibility. The trough of low pressure bringing in the storm also has a lot of very unstable air in it, and that can induce thunderstorm-like snow showers that can put down heavy amounts in localized areas in a short period of time.

Snow falling at 4:45 pm Monday in Reno.

The trough moves through the region Tuesday, and after scattered morning snow showers, the skies should break up by the afternoon. High temperatures will be quite chilly, barely getting into the low 40s Tuesday and only climbing into the mid to upper 40s for the rest of the week.

As we head into the weekend, temperatures do rise back into the 50s with sunny skies on Saturday, with the next slight chance of precipitation coming through Sunday.
