NWS:

SOUTHERN SIERRA MONDAY NIGHT AND COULD LOWER TO 5500 FEET ACROSS
LINCOLN COUNTY BY EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. AS FOR THE SPRING
MOUNTAINS WE COULD SEE SOME FLAKES AS LOW AS 6500 FEET. DUE TO
OVERLAND TRAJECTORY OF LOW EXPECTING MOST SITES TO SEE LESS THAN
A QUARTER INCH OF PRECIPITATION...WHICH COULD TRANSLATE TO BETWEEN
1-3 INCHES OF SNOW. TEMPERATURES WILL BOTTOM OUT ON TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY AROUND 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.


If you plan to go out during this time period, please be prepared.

Snippet off today's Reno technical forecast discussion long range possibilities. That would be Nov 7/8. Many locations in the SF Bay Area received ZERO precipitation this October though the Sierra and northwest parts of the state received minor amounts.

ECMWF IS SHOWING A DECENT PRECIPITATION EVENT IN THE NORTHERN SIERRA LATE
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. THE GFS ENSEMBLES ARE ALL TRENDING TOWARD A
NEGATIVE PHASE OF THE PACIFIC-NORTH AMERICAN PATTERN, WHICH IS ALSO
A FAVORABLE SIGN FOR A POTENTIALLY WETTER PATTERN LATE NEXT WEEK.
