.UPDATE...

A few more showers than originally forecast are lingering in
northeast California and the far northern Sierra early this
evening as a vorticity lobe and its attendant forcing pushes
through on the back side of the upper low. As the upper low
continues to fill and lift east-northeast this evening...the
showers should dissipate. Showers are likely this evening in far
eastern parts of Churchill and Pershing counties as well where
there is a bit more instability...but much of this will be lifting
into central Nevada. Updates will be out soon to account for the
lingering showers.

.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 246 PM PDT Sat Mar 23 2019/

SYNOPSIS...

Dry weather and good travel conditions are on tap for Sunday
before a series of storms move through the region the week ahead.
These storms will bring periods of mountain snow, valley rain,
and gusty winds. The greatest travel impacts will be overnight and
during the early morning hours, however, the strongest storm may
bring significant travel difficulties Tuesday night through
Thursday morning.

SHORT TERM...Now through Tuesday Night...

Our current storm is beginning to wind down with only showers
(including snow pellets) anticipated the remainder of the day.
There is a very low chance (less than 10%) a stray thunderstorm
could form, but soundings and current mesoanalysis are not
favorable, with better chances into eastern Nevada and north-
central California. Precipitation will begin to clear out of the
region overnight with Sunday likely to be the only rain/snow-free
day of the week. This means any outdoor plans and/or prepping for
the series of storms the week ahead should be completed tomorrow.
It`ll also be the best travel day if you need to cross the Sierra.

The next storm approaches the region Monday, with two waves ahead of
the main low moving inland Monday and Tuesday. Ahead of this storm,
winds will begin increasing across ridgelines Sunday night, with
gusty winds mixing down into valley locations during the day Monday.
This does not look like a high wind event, but it will certainly be
windy with gusts of 30-45 mph looking probable, and locally higher
gusts in wind prone locations. This is likely to cause travel
difficulties for high profile vehicles along with turbulence for
aviation. Winds will remain gusty into Tuesday, but aren`t looking
quite as strong Tuesday as compared to Monday.

The leading shortwave on Monday will produce rain and snow for the
region, but it doesn`t appear to hold together well as it crosses
the Sierra crest. This means that liquid totals are likely to be
highest on western slopes to the crest, with lesser amounts into
western Nevada. A secondary wave follows late Monday night into
Tuesday, reinvigorating precipitation chances, but once again it is
questionable how much will spillover. Best shot would appear to
be Tuesday morning, but qpf totals are still not overly impressive.

Snow levels look to hover around 6000-6500 feet during the day and
closer to 5000-5500 feet overnight (about 500 feet lower in
northeast CA and near the Oregon border). While it will snow over
passes, it will be hard to see much if any accumulation during
the daytime hours this time of the year given that roads often
warm into the 50s despite air temps in the 30s. Overnight,
however, accumulating snow is likely in the Sierra with travel
difficulties likely and chain controls possible.

Precipitation intensity will ramp up Tuesday night and especially
Wednesday as the main low begins to move onshore. Significant travel
impacts are likely in the Sierra beginning Tuesday night, with
periods of moderate to heavy spillover into western Nevada. Please
see the long term for additional details. -Dawn

LONG TERM...Wednesday and beyond...

Active weather early next week looks to peak Tuesday night into
Wednesday as a closed low system begins to drive modest subtropical
moisture across the Sierra into western Nevada.

The overall trend is still wetter and have continued to trend the
forecast in that direction. This storm is looking to provide all
snow for areas above about 6,500` from the start so significant
travel impacts area expected across Sierra passes particularly
Tuesday night into Wednesday. 1-2 feet of snowfall is possible
across the Tahoe Basin with smaller localized amounts up to 3 feet
possible right along the Sierra crest during this period. Mono
county should stay south of the main moisture plume and is looking
at totals more in the 1-1.5 foot vicinity.

Snow levels will fall to near 5,000 feet by Wednesday morning with
rain changing to snowfall across foothill locations across western
Nevada. This will mainly be a rainfall event for western Nevada
valleys with the best potential for spillover rainfall looking to
occur early Wednesday morning. Have also increased expected rainfall
amounts along the Highway 395/I580 corridor from North Valleys/Reno
through the Carson Valley with accumulations looking to target 1/2"-
3/4" range. Gusty winds around 40 mph are also expected on Wednesday
with a few higher gusts in wind prone locations. However, winds will
subside during the periods of peak spillover rainfall Wednesday
morning.

Most rain/snow shower activity will weaken Wednesday night into
Thursday morning, but this is where certainty becomes less as model
guidance diverges on how quickly it ejects the system. Some guidance
keeps a weak trough and shower activity across the region through
Friday evening while others dry us out quickly after Thursday
afternoon. At this time the wetter solution is an outlier when
compared to other ensemble consensus and deterministic runs so kept
the forecast on the drier side heading into the weekend. Fuentes

AVIATION...

Isolated shower activity will continue to diminish through the
evening with only a very brief period of MVFR conditions possible
through about 03z in any passing showers. Terrain cloud obscuration
will lessen through early evening as drier air works its way in
aloft. Otherwise Sunday will be a quiet weather day with VFR
conditions and light winds expected across all terminals.

The quiet weather will be short lived however as the weather becomes
active again by Monday and multiple storms move across the Sierra
and western Nevada. Gusty winds and rain/snow showers return with
the strongest storm expected to arrive in the Tuesday night to
Wednesday timeframe. This will be the best potential for several
inches of accumulating snowfall for KTRK, KTVL, and KMMH while
western Nevada will see mainly gusty winds, areas of turbulence
and periods of moderate to heavy rainfall. Fuentes
