It’s below freezing out, but the roads are dry in the Valley this morning. There isn’t any activity for Western Nevada on the Nevada Highway Patrol site, so it looks like a safe commute today. There appears to be some activity on the CHP blog around Truckee, which shouldn’t be a surprise.
We’re going to see the reverse of the usual weather pattern today with reasonably light winds (for Nevada) on this side of the Sierra and a rager on the west slope. A high wind warning is in effect until 4 a.m. Saturday for Yosemite to Kings Canyon, with northeast winds 30-40 mph, gusting to 60-70 mph. The National Weather Service is warning people to look out for debris and tree damage.
Meanwhile expect 10-15 mph winds on our side of the mountain and a high near 40 degrees, under somewhat sunny skies.
