across the southern sierra. the front will also transition rain to snow for western nevada later this morning with levels dropping near 4,500-5,000. current positions puts this transition somewhere near the susanville area and expect the front to move through the reno-carson city vicinity by late morning. snow will begin to mix with snow but surface temperatures should be warm enough to limit accumulations across western nevada valleys. the main forecast challenge will occur sunday as the core of the upper low moves across western nevada. this will result in less moisture but increased instability aloft. as such, looking for more convective and banded snowfall to occur which is inherently difficult to pin down in a forecast. latest model runs have depicted one such band farther north along the i-80 corridor by sunday afternoon. overall, the highest probabilities for seeing higher snowfall accumulations in the 3-6" in range favoring areas mainly south of hwy 50 with lower end amounts of an inch or two possible between i-80
