There’s a lot of stormy weather left this week, with a wet and warm storm gradually transitioning into a somewhat less wet and somewhat colder storm. Significant rain below the 8,000′ snow level overnight tonight into tomorrow morning has caused an Areal Flood Advisory to be posted for the Lake Tahoe area, as some leftover snow is still clogging up storm drains. As we go through the day on Thursday, snow levels will gradually lower to about 6,500′, and then drop all the way to the valley floor by Friday, although the deepest moisture will be past us by then.
High winds will continue to plague the valleys, and the High Wind Warning continues for western Nevada through Thursday. High wind gusts of 60 mph are possible, with even stronger blasts in the wind-prone areas.
As the valley rain switches over to snow late Thursday night into Friday, precipitation amounts will lessen, but a few additional inches of snow over the course of the weekend is not out of the realm of possibility.
