Fog, rain and snow for Carson City this weekend
The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement ahead of a projected weekend storm and extended a dense fog advisory to Friday morning.
The NWS says fog will reduce visibility to less than one-quarter mile in Carson City and Carson Valley, with the advisory now in effect until 10 a.m. Friday.
Then, beginning Friday afternoon, the latest storm in the area will bring rain turning to snow and last through much of the weekend.
“This storm will bring another round of heavy, wet snow to the high Sierra and rain for the lower elevations,” the NWS said in a statement available here, with snow levels expected to fall late Saturday afternoon into Sunday.
“If you have plans to travel through the Sierra this weekend, make sure to watch the weather forecast closely and be prepared for treacherous travel across the Sierra.”
