..SPRING STORMS TO BRING WIND AND SNOW IMPACTS THIS WEEK
 
 
A SERIES OF WEAK-MODERATE SPRING STORMS WILL BRING WEATHER IMPACTS  
TO THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA AT TIMES THROUGH THURSDAY.  
 
* IF WIND IS YOUR WORRY: GUSTY WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THIS  
EVENING, WITH ANOTHER ROUND OF STRONGER WINDS LIKELY FOR  
WEDNESDAY. TRAVEL IMPACTS ON WIND PRONE ROADS SUCH AS HIGHWAY  
395/I-580 ALONG WITH INCREASED TURBULENCE CAN BE EXPECTED. THIS  
DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE A MAJOR DAMAGING WIND SCENARIO. TUESDAY  
WILL BE BREEZY TOO, BUT OVERALL WIND SPEEDS WON'T BE AS STRONG.  
 
* IF SNOW IS SCARY: THE STRONGEST STORM IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE  
REGION LATE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY. HEAVY WET SNOW WILL  
AFFECT TRAVEL IN THE SIERRA, ESPECIALLY AT PASS ELEVATIONS, WITH  
LESS CERTAIN IMPACTS INTO MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES AND WESTERN  
NEVADA FOOTHILLS BETWEEN 5500 AND 7000 FEET. THE WEDNESDAY  
MORNING AND EVENING COMMUTES COULD BE PROBLEMATIC IN THE  
MOUNTAINS. LIGHTER SNOW MAY AFFECT TRAVEL IN THE SIERRA AND  
NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA LATE TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING, BUT  
TRAVEL IMPACT RISKS ARE LOWER. SCATTERED SNOW AND PELLET SHOWERS  
ARE FORECAST THURSDAY REGION-WIDE BUT IMPACTS WILL BE LOCALIZED  
AND SHORT LIVED.  
 
* IF FLOODING IS YOUR FEAR: WEDNESDAY IS WORTH WATCHING BUT NOT  
OVERLY CONCERNING. A PERIOD OF SPILLOVER RAINS WILL IMPACT  
WESTERN NEVADA VALLEYS AND CITIES WEDNESDAY, LEADING TO SOME  
RISES ON CREEKS PLUS MINOR AND TEMPORARY FLOODING OF POOR  
DRAINAGE AREAS. RAIN COULD LEAD TO A SLOW COMMUTE WEDNESDAY  
MORNING.
