KOLO-TV Detailed Forecast
Wind Advisory in effect for the Sierra Front and Basin and Range Saturday, from 8 AM until 11 PM. Southwesterly winds of 20-35 mph are expected, with gusts up to 55 mph. Gusts of 55-65 mph are possible in wind-prone areas.
Red Flag Warning for the Sierra Front and Basin and Range Saturday, from 8 AM until 8 PM. The expected gusty wind, low humidity, and dry conditions will combine to create explosive fire weather conditions.
An area of low pressure will move from the eastern Pacific into the region Saturday, driving a cold front through the Sierra and into northern Nevada. Gusty wind is in the forecast, along with a chance of showers Saturday night into Sunday morning. For the Sierra, rain showers are likely, with snow levels falling to Lake Tahoe level by Sunday morning. A few inches of snow are possible on the Sierra passes early Sunday. Following the front, Sunday will be much cooler, with valley highs only warming into the 50s. Next work week will be milder, with the storm track in the Pacific Northwest. Look for occasional clouds and highs around to just above average. -Jeff
