A very active week is setting up weather-wise in our region. A series of storm fronts will move through the region before drying up at the end of the work week. The first storm will likely result in fairly light precipitation of rain and snow into Tuesday morning, with the focus of heavier precipitation off to the east. After a brief break, a couple of stronger storms will move through the region Wednesday and Thursday, with very strong impacts on travel, especially in the mountains. Snow levels will vacillate between the valleys floors to just above Lake Tahoe as the storms move in. The strongest storms will likely come late Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon. High winds could create blizzard conditions over the mountains on Thursday.
Conditions dry out by Friday, and the weekend is shaping up to be dry and mild.
