According to CarsonWeather.com a very cold air mass will remain over eastern California and

western Nevada for much of the upcoming week. Daytime temperatures will remain below freezing even in the lower elevations from Monday through Wednesday.

For Monday night and Tuesday night temperatures could drop into the single digits across most of the

region with temperatures possibly dropping below zero especially in snow covered areas if skies clear.

Pacific moisture will return to the Sierra by Thursday morning bringing another round of snow to much of the region. While it is too early to forecast exact snow amounts this system does not appear to be as strong as the current storm. However, accumulating snow will be possible in the higher elevations with some light precipitation in the lower elevations on Thursday.

A stronger storm may arrive to the region by Saturday.

At this time the air mass does not appear to be as cold so precipitation in lower elevations could fall as rain...but significant snowfall will be possible in the Sierra. The wet pattern looks to continue

through the weekend and into the early part of next week with a series of storm systems possibly affecting the region.

The National Weather Service is reporting snow levels of 8 to 14 inches in Carson City, 12 inches in Washoe Valley.

Schools were canceled in Carson City, Dayton, Silver Springs and Fernley, as well as in Washoe County and Incline Village.
