Some Forecast Changes...

Category: Weather

The forecast models overnight made some changes with the track of the storm for Sunday night and Tuesday, which is adjusting the snowfall forecast.  They are pushing the 2 waves further North with less snowfall for the Tahoe Basin.

Still expecting sunny, mild, and breezy today with highs into the 50's.  Winds up top will start to gust around 30 mph.

Then on Sunday clouds increase and so do the winds.  Sunday night a weak system pushes through to the North.  We could see some light precip with snow levels around 8000 feet.  Above that we could see 1-2 inches on the mountain.  Winds up top could gust around 50 mph.

Chances for light rain/snow continue for Monday with snow levels lowering to around 7000 feet.  We could see another 1-2 inches on the mountain above the snow line.  Winds on Monday could gust to 65 mph up top.

A colder system pushes in Monday night dropping snow levels below the base.  We could see 3-6 inches at the base, and 4-8 inches on the mountain.

In total by Tuesday morning we could see 6-12 inches on the mountain.

Temperatures stay cool through Wednesday as high pressure builds back in.  Sunny and dry conditions will return into next weekend with highs into the 50's by the end of the week.  

It looks like we could possibly see a cold trough drop down the West Coast with colder air and showers around the 28th.
