KOLO-TV Detailed Forecast
*WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the Sierra, including the Tahoe Basin, from 5 PM Friday through 11 AM Saturday. A foot or more of snow is possible on the passes (areas above 7000') by late Saturday, with a few inches expected down to lake level (2-5").
As a storm pushes through the region overnight, rain and snow will develop in the Sierra in the early evening hours, followed by western Nevada valleys later in the evening. Travelers should expect winter driving conditions in the mountains though Saturday, with valley rain and snow becoming showery. Much colder weather will stick around through Monday, with morning lows dipping below freezing for most areas (teens in the Sierra). Don't forget to turn the clocks back one hour when you go to bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving time ends at 2 AM Sunday. -Jeff
