"Snow will move into the region Wednesday evening with impacts to travel over the Sierra passes, Lake Tahoe Basin and portions of Lassen County through Thursday morning," they said. "A few light showers may move through western Nevada with very light accumulations possible for the Reno metro area, Carson City, Douglas and Storey counties.
