Tribune/Nathan Orme - Hank Winig of Sparks does some parablading — inline skating with the help of a homemade sail — on Saturday at Teglia’s Paradise Park on Elementary Drive in Reno. Winig said his sail was made with about $5 in materials, including a tarp, a couple of golf tee flags, an old walker and duct tape. The activity is great exercise for upper and lower body, he said, and works even better on skis during windy days.

SPARKS — Heavy winds prompted warnings from the National Weather Service across the northern Nevada region Saturday, affecting visibility on many area roads.

Some late morning gusts of wind hit 47 mph, according to hourly National Weather Service readings, though most of Saturday’s winds were in the 20 to 30 mph range.

NV Energy reported scattered power outages attributable to weather but none were reported in Sparks.

Warmer temperatures, wind and some precipitation are expected today in the Truckee Meadows.

Heavy snow fell in the Lake Tahoe area Saturday with another three to seven inches of accumulation expected overnight and into today. Chain were required on many Sierra roads.

Much of the same weather was felt around northern California, where heavy winds and rain brought down trees, leading to isolated power outages and creating hazardous conditions for boaters in coastal waters.
