... Winter Weather Advisory in effect until noon PST today...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Weather
Advisory for snow, which is in effect until noon PST today.

* Timing: a band of moderate to heavy snow will affect the Reno
and Sparks areas through noon. Lighter bands will affect areas
near and south of Highway 50 this morning.

City. South of Highway 50 up to 2 inches.

* Winds: south to southwest winds 10 to 20 with gusts to 3 mph.

visibility with snowfall rates up to 2 inches per hour at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Travel delays are likely across the Sierra front north of Highway
50 especially above 5000 feet. Roads may also become slick in
lower elevations this morning. Leave extra space between vehicles

Statement as of 4:33 AM PST on February 21, 2017

... A Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams for rain and
snowmelt remains in effect until 1130 am PST Tuesday for Plumas...
alpine... Sierra... southeastern Lassen... Storey... southern Washoe...
Douglas... and northern Lyon counties and Carson City...

At 427 am PST, the heavy rain has ended, but many small streams
continue to see high flows and are out of their banks. Also,
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas should continue
through the morning. Showers will persist today and snow levels will
begin to fall. The falling snow levels and lack of widespread
moderate or greater rain will allow many areas with minor flooding
to see their flood waters slowly drain through the morning.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Reno, Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville, Virginia City, Dayton, the
Sierra Valley, and Washoe Valley

The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* Flood Warning for...

east central Lassen County in northern California...
central Washoe County in western Nevada...

* until 1115 am PST Tuesday

* at 418 am PST, minor flooding continues in parts of northeast
California and northwest Nevada in response to run off from heavy
rains that occurred Monday. A few roads remain closed southeast of
Susanville this morning.

* While the heaviest precipitation has ended, water will be slow to
drain out of low lying and poor drainage areas this morning. Any
additional moderate showers will prolong any flooding. Snow levels
are falling, so the rain should end by early afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
