The R-C Morning Report

A winter weather advisory takes effect at noon today as the third in a parade of storms moves through Western Nevada. Forecasters are expecting 3-5 inches of snow south of Highway 50, with 4-8 inches above 5,000 feet. Wind gusts will be south 15-25 mph with gusts to 40 mph, so hold onto your hats. It looks like we might be the focus of this storm, so watch out for local blizzard conditions.

Snow tires or chains are being required over Kingsbury Grade and Spooner Summit, and pretty much all around the Lake. There's a wind advisory on Highway 395 through Washoe Valley and road controls between Walker and Bridgeport. Interstate 80, Highway 50 and Highway 88 all require chains or four-wheel drive to cross.

In the midst of the storm, board members of the Indian Hills General Improvement District are meeting to finalize two agreements related to the Minden-Carson pipeline project, and discussing applying for grants and loans to help fund the project. Among the items on the agenda is a loan application for $1.1 million from the drinking water state revolving fund and a letter of intent and application for $901,420 grant from the state. The district board meets 6 p.m. at 3394 James Lee Park.
