...QUICK HITTING WINTER STORM SUNDAY FOLLOWED BY BITTERLY COLD  
TEMPERATURES...  
 
* SNOW WILL BEGIN TO PUSH INTO THE REGION SUNDAY MORNING WORKING  
FROM NORTH TO SOUTH THROUGH THE DAY. THE HEAVIER BAND OF SNOW  
WILL ONLY LAST UP TO A FEW HOURS IN WESTERN NEVADA WITH UP TO 6  
HOURS AS IT TRANSVERSES THE SIERRA. WHILE A FEW LIGHT SNOW  
SHOWERS MAY LINGER SOUTH OF MONO LAKE EARLY MONDAY MORNING,  
OVERALL THE SYSTEM WILL BE OUT OF THE AREA MONDAY. THIS WILL BE  
A COLD SYSTEM, WITH LIGHT POWDERY SNOW AT ALL ELEVATIONS. FOR  
DETAILS ON SNOW TOTALS, PLEASE SEE THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY.  
 
* IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH FOR THE SNOW TO PACK DOWN INTO ICE AS CARS  
DRIVE OVER IT. DRIVING CONDITIONS MAY GET MESSY SUNDAY, WITH  
THE POTENTIAL FOR LINGERING ICY CONDITIONS INTO THE MONDAY  
MORNING COMMUTE.  
 
* FOR THE LATEST ROADWAY CONDITIONS CALL 5 1 1 OR DOWNLOAD  
CALTRAN'S AND NDOT'S SMART PHONE APPLICATIONS, QUICKMAP AND  
NVROADS, RESPECTIVELY.  
 
* THIS STORM WILL ALSO BRING STRONG NORTHEAST WINDS ON SUNDAY  
LEADING TO CHOPPY LAKE AND RECREATION IMPACTS. WINDS WILL ALSO  
DRIVE WIND CHILLS INTO THE TEENS AND SINGLE DIGITS ON SUNDAY. BE  
SURE TO BUNDLE UP!  
 
* FRIGID TEMPERATURES WILL SETTLE INTO THE REGION BEHIND THIS  
STORM WITH HIGHS REMAINING BELOW FREEZING MONDAY AND POSSIBLY  
TUESDAY. OVERNIGHT LOWS MONDAY NIGHT COULD BE THE COLDEST SOME  
LOCATIONS HAVE SEEN IN 5-10 YEARS. PREPARATIONS SHOULD BE MADE  
TO PROTECT VULNERABLE POPULATIONS AND PETS FROM THESE VERY COLD  
TEMPERATURES. IT'S ALSO A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR PIPES  
ARE PROTECTED FROM THE COLD.
