SYNOPSIS (3:03 AM PDT)...A FAST MOVING DRY COLD FRONT WILL PASS THROUGH THE SIERRA AND NORTHWEST NEVADA LATE TODAY, THOUGH WILL HAVE LITTLE IMPACT. A DEVELOPING STORM SYSTEM IN THE NORTHEAST PACIFIC IS LIKELY TO BRING RAIN, SNOW, AND COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION BY THE END OF THE WEEK AND START OF THE WEEKEND. ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM IS POSSIBLE AROUND THE TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY TIME FRAME NEXT WEEK.

SIERRA LAKE TAHOE FORECAST DISCUSSION: A DRY COLD FRONT WILL PASS THROUGH THE REGION LATE TODAY, BUT WILL HAVE LITTLE IMPACT OTHER THAN PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES AND A SLIGHT INCREASE IN NORTHERLY BREEZES. THE WIND WILL HELP IMPROVE MIXING TODAY PUSHING HIGH TEMPS 5 TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL, WITH JUST A FEW DEGREES OF COOLING TOMORROW BEHIND THE FRONT. WEAK WARM AIR ADVECTION WILL INCREASE CLOUDS THURSDAY AND MAY LEAD TO LIGHT PRECIPITATION THURSDAY NIGHT MAINLY NORTH OF A SUSANVILLE-LOVELOCK LINE. THE VERY DRY AIR MASS CURRENTLY IN PLACE WILL AID IN THE WET BULB EFFECT DRIVING SNOW LEVELS DOWN QUICKER THAN PROGS WOULD SUPPORT. THE BIG STORY IN THE FORECAST IS A STORM SYSTEM CURRENTLY IN THE NORTHEAST PACIFIC  WHICH WILL DROP ALONG THE WEST COAST FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. THIS WILL BRING SHOWERS AND MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION. THIS SYSTEM DOES ORIGINATE IN THE PACIFIC AND HAS MOISTURE WRAPPED INTO IT, BUT IS A HYBRID SLIDER IN THAT IN DROPS SOUTH OVER LAND, ALMOST ALONG THE SIERRA, AND SO DOES NOT MAINTAIN A PACIFIC MOISTURE TAP. THEREFORE, IT DOES HAVE DEEP MOISTURE TO WORK WITH, BUT THE MOISTURE IS LIMITED, AND THE NORTHWEST TRAJECTORY IS NOT GREAT FOR OROGRAPHIC ENHANCEMENT EITHER. OVERALL, PRECIPITATION LOOKS TO BE MORE SHOWERY WITH THE BEST BET FOR STEADY PRECIPITATION ALONG A DEFORMATION AXIS LATE FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. ALL AREAS IN THE SIERRA AND NORTHWEST NEVADA HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE SHOWERS, BUT PINING DOWN WHICH AREAS WILL BE HARDEST HIT IS ESPECIALLY TRICKY WITH THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM A FEW DAYS OUT. THE COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL QUICKLY BRING SNOW LEVELS DOWN TO 4000-5000 FEET FRIDAY NIGHT. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE LOCATIONS IN WESTERN NEVADA COULD SEE LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATION, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE DEFORMATION BAND IS LIKELY TO FORM OVERNIGHT. HOWEVER, THIS IS GOING TO BE DEPENDENT ON EXACTLY WHERE THE BAND SETS UP...SOME PLACES MAY SEE ACCUMULATION WHILE OTHERS STAY DRY. IN THE SIERRA, 3 TO 6 INCHES IS POSSIBLE FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING, WITH ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATION POSSIBLE DURING THE DAY SATURDAY. FORECASTER CONFIDENCE IS LOW TO MEDIUM FOR WESTERN NEVADA SNOW TOTALS AND MEDIUM FOR THE SIERRA SNOW TOTALS. THE BIG THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS IF YOU HAVE TRAVEL PLANS FOR FRIDAY AND/OR SATURDAY, YOUR TRAVEL MAY BE IMPACTED BY SNOW. BE PREPARED FOR WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS AND CHECK BACK FOR THE LATEST FORECAST DETAILS.

LONG TERM WEATHER....SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...LOW PRESSURE CONTINUES TO PUSH THROUGH THE REGION ON SATURDAY WITH A MID-LEVEL DEFORMATION ZONE SETTING UP OVER THE SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA. MODELS ARE SHOWING SOME GOOD AGREEMENT LOWERING SNOW LEVELS TO AROUND 4000 FEET SATURDAY MORNING WITH LIGHT PRECIPITATION IN THE REGION AS THE TROUGH AXIS/COLD POOL MOVES OVERHEAD. THERE IS STILL MUCH UNCERTAINTY WITH PRECIPITATION/SNOW AMOUNTS FOR SATURDAY, AS THE TRACK OF THE STORM WILL DETERMINE THE PLACEMENT OF DEFORMATION/INSTABILITY/HEAVIER PRECIPITATION. FOR NOW, WE'VE CONTINUED TO INCREASE THE CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION IN WESTERN NEVADA INTO THE "LIKELY" CATEGORY, BUT ONLY EXPECTING LIGHT QUANTITATIVE PRECIPITATION FORECAST AMOUNTS AT THIS TIME. CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING THAT SOME AREAS IN WESTERN NEVADA COULD SEE A LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW BY SATURDAY. AT THIS TIME FORECASTER CONFIDENCE IS LOW-MEDIUM FOR SEEING LIGHT SNOW ON THE VALLEY FLOORS OF WESTERN NEVADA AND NORTHEASTERN CALIFORNIA, BUT IT'S STILL POSSIBLE THAT SOME AREAS MAY NOT SEE ANY SNOW AT ALL. AS THE LOW SHIFTS SOUTH, THIS WILL BRING FAVORABLE UPSLOPE TO THE EASTERN SIERRA UNDER LOW-LEVEL NORTHEAST FLOW. DUE TO THIS, MODERATE AMOUNTS OF SNOW ARE POSSIBLE IN THE TAHOE BASIN AND EASTERN SIERRA THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT WITH OVER 6" STORM TOTAL SNOW POSSIBLE ABOVE 7000 FEET (FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT). FORECASTER CONFIDENCE IS MEDIUM THAT WE WILL SEE THESE SNOW AMOUNTS. ANOTHER COLD SLIDER-TYPE SYSTEM DROPS ALONG THE PACIFIC COAST TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY WITH ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION TO THE REGION. ECWMF SWINGS OFFSHORE PICKING UP A LITTLE MOISTURE, BUT THE LATEST GFS RUNS HAVE KEPT THE SHORTWAVE INLAND, WITH VERY LITTLE PRECIPITATION. EITHER WAY, THIS STORM DOESN'T LOOK BIG BY ANY MEANS, DUE TO THE TRAJECTORY AND OVERALL LACK OF MOISTURE. BUT, THE COLD AIR AND FORCING ASSOCIATED WITH IT COULD POSSIBLY BRING ANOTHER MODEST AMOUNT OF SNOW TO THE SIERRA AND EVEN WESTERN NEVADA. BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE LIKELY THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK.
