* Travel in Western Nevada and the Sierra will largely be free of
  weather impacts today, with a few light snow showers and breezy
  winds on Saturday.

* Travel late Sunday into Monday will be considerably worse due to
  snow and strong winds. High snowfall rates are possible Sunday
  night in the Sierra, with a rain snow-mix Western Nevada
  cities. Icy roads could affect the Monday morning commute.

* Strong winds on Sunday into Monday, especially in Nevada and
  the Eastern Sierra, could result in high profile vehicle
  restrictions, and localized tree/fence damage and power outages.

* Snow showers and much colder temperatures will linger across the
  region Monday through Wednesday. Vigorous snow showers could
  bring additional snow accumulation up to a few inches anywhere
  in the Sierra and western Nevada.

* For those who are more than ready to say goodbye to winter,
  there is hope on the horizon. A drying and warming trend is
  starting to shape up going into the following weekend.
