* Winds: Southwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts 35 to 45 mph.

* Tahoe Wave Heights: 2 to 4 feet. Highest waves along northern
  and eastern shores.

* Impacts: Snow and gusty winds may produce travel slow downs,

  snow. Small boats, kayaks and paddle boards will be prone to 
  capsizing and should remain off lake waters until conditions 
  improve.

Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during
periods of high traffic volume. Be sure to allow extra time to
reach your destination. Leave extra space between vehicles since
it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.
