DISCUSSION: As noted in an earlier post yesterday evening by Meteorologist Jesse Olsen, there is a continued threat for heavy snowfall in the more elevated parts of California and Nevada. Attached below is some text included verbatim from the corresponding Facebook post associated with this continued elevated winter storm threat for these areas.
"A Blizzard Warning has been issued for the Sierra through Wednesday morning. Dangerous and potentially life threatening blizzard conditions are possible in the Sierra.
See latest statement: http://go.usa.gov/x9QDg
Multiple feet of snowfall are expected. Strong winds will produce zero visibility in whiteout conditions along with high drifting snow. Do not attempt to travel as first responders may not be able to rescue you.
Travel may already be impossible with several road closures due to heavy snow already being reported. Even a short walk could be deadly if you become disoriented. Avalanche danger will remain high through this storm. Stay home, stay safe!"
