Forecast: Snow levels to remain at 7,000 feet

Staff Reports

Forecasters say snow levels are no longer expected to rise above 7,000 feet.

"This is good news for the flooding concerns in Western Nevada, but not so much for anyone trying to travel in the Sierra tonight," according to a 3:28 p.m. update from the National Weather Service.

Heavy precipitation has managed to keep winds relatively light today, but forecasters say there could still be a burst of strong winds for 2-3 hours Monday night as precipitation tapers off. Peak winds could hit around midnight.

Carson Valley residents should be prepared for power outages as a result.
