30 Inch Storm Total Up Top, Another Storm Saturday

Category: Weather
Lake Tahoe Storm Radar

Snowfall Report:

We picked up 10-12 inches on the upper mountain and 6-7 inches at the base in the past 24 hours.  That brings the 3-day storm total to 21-30 inches on the upper mountain and 11-16 inches at the base!  That will help to get more terrain open going into the weekend.

Saturday Storm:

We are expecting a break during the day on Friday but cold with highs only in the 30's.

A final storm will drop down from the north on Saturday.  Snow should return later Friday night into Saturday before tapering off Saturday evening.  This storm looks cold and could bring 5-10 inches of cold powdery snow to the mountain by Sunday morning. 

Winds could be an issue up top with gusts to 50 mph during the day on Saturday.

Cold Weather:

Sunday into Monday the sun should return. But it will be cold with highs only in the 20's on the upper mountain and 30's at the base.  But with lighter winds.

Long-Range:

It looks like we could possibly see some light snow showers Tuesday-Thursday next week.  A storm near the CA coast could brush us with light snowfall.  The amounts will depend on the track of storm as it moves down the coast.

The weather pattern looks to remain active through the 2nd week of December.  We could see a storm the weekend of the 8th and another storm or two the week of the 10th.
