The R-C Morning Report

A storm is rolling out of the north that could bring mountain snow and rain by tonight. The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement at 3:23 a.m. warning that a cold front is rapidly approaching and will be in upper Washoe and Lassen counties by this afternoon and here by this evening. Winds will increase to 15-25 mph with 35-45 mph gusts. Winds over the Sierra crest will hit 60-80 mph. Behind the front, snow levels will drop to about 6,000 feet with the potential for 3-5 inches above 7,000 feet. The weather service is warning motorists to prepare for winter driving conditions Friday night and Saturday morning.

Fortunately, many Candy Dance crafters will arrive ahead of the storm on Friday, but setting up booths in the wind isn't much fun. The high on Saturday is expected to hit 60 degrees with the weather warming up on Sunday.

Well-named Nevada horticulturalist and former R-C columnist Dick Post will be signing copies of the "Nevada Gardener's Guide" 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Carson Valley Garden & Ranch in, yep you guessed it, Gardnerville. In other book related weekend news, the Douglas County Public Library will host its annual book sale. The preview is 6-8 p.m. tonight for members of Friends of the Library, but if you've a hankering to join, they'll welcome you to the party. The main sale is all day Saturday.
