* Cooler, Wetter Weather Today *

“Much cooler temperatures along with showers and isolated thunderstorms are in store for today. Upper level low over California and Nevada is destabilizing the atmosphere and allowing scattered showers already this morning. There is still a bit of uncertainty with regards to how much precipitation will fall and where, as computer simulations still can’t agree on it this morning!

Be prepared for areas of showers, isolated thunderstorms, as well as light snow accumulations above 9000 feet! Temperatures will be 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday as well so if you are enjoying the outdoors make sure to bring layers. Comment below with your weather reports. Thanks!” – NOAA Reno, NV today

  "The other locations that 
  should see heavier precipitation will be in the Sierra from Lake 
  Tahoe down to Mono County where we could see up to 0.25" of 
  precipitation with up to a couple inches of snow for elevations 
  above 9000 feet." - NOAA Reno, NV today
