4-6+ Feet by Thursday, Another Storm for the Weekend

Category: Weather
Monday - Thursday Storm:

There will be two systems moving into the Pacific NW that will push the heavier precipitation over northern CA farther south into the Tahoe basin Monday night and Tuesday night.  We start with light snow Monday afternoon, and then the heavier snow pushes in Monday night through Thursday morning.  Lighter snow showers possible for Thursday afternoon before the storm clears out.  

Not much change to the snowfall forecast today.  Snow levels should stay down to the base through Wednesday morning but could rise just above the base Wednesday afternoon/evening before falling again Wednesday night into Thursday.  We will see high winds through Wednesday night so expect upper mountain lift closures to continue.

We could see a fresh 1-2 feet on the mountain each morning Tuesday-Thursday, with several inches possible at the end Thursday.  Storm totals by Thursday evening could be 3-4 feet at the base, and 4-6+ feet on the mountain.  The winds should come down some by Thursday afternoon, so we may be able to access the snow on the upper mountain at some point Thursday.

Quick Break:

We could see a break Thursday night into Friday, with some sun and temperatures into the 30's on Friday. 

Long-Range:

The next storm moves in by Saturday, with snow showers possibly lingering into Sunday.  We could pick up another 1-2 feet of snow on the mountain.  We will fine-tune the details as we get closer.

The active pattern could continue into the 2nd week of March.
