KOLO-TV Detailed Forecast
*WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect for the Sierra, including the Tahoe Basin, from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. A foot or more of snow is possible on the passes (areas above 7000') by midday Sunday, with a few inches expected down to lake level (2-5").
The storm track will stay north of the region through Thursday, allowing afternoon highs to warm into the mid to uppper 70s for valley floors and 60s for Lake Tahoe. Some high clouds will drift overhead from time-to-time. On Halloween, a storm system will approach the west coast. Clouds and wind will increase during the day, ahead of a sharp cold front. Rain and snow will develop in the afternoon in the Sierra, with snow levels quickly falling as the front pushes into Nevada Friday night. Travelers should expect winter driving conditions over the passes Friday afternoon though early Saturday. For valley floors, Friday evening rain and wind, along with much cooler temperatures are in the forecast for trick-or-treaters, with a chilly, unsettled Saturday to welcome November. 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
