Forecast Summary

Most of the Lake is closed, or significantly delayed, check websites to be sure.  It was a huge day for snowfall, I am waiting for the totals to come in.  Palisades is reporting 38–wow!  This system moves out this morning, by 9 am, or so.  It is still snowing hard at Palisades, looking at the Siberia Express Cam.  The present storm is working its way through Utah and Colorado.  The system exits Utah this afternoon and Colorado tonight.

The next storm will be hitting the Seattle coast late this afternoon or early evening.  This storm is taking a southeast track that will probably miss Lake Tahoe, which is probably a good thing to give them time to dig out.  There will be fresh snow for at least a week.  

Lake Tahoe


Storm moves out and the sun comes out this afternoon.  Temperatures in the upper teens with light winds 10-15 mph but there will be occasional gusts around 25 mph.  




Snow continues throughout the day with temperatures in the mid to upper teens.  Winds will be from the south from 15-20 mph with 30 mph gusts. 

Snowfall Graphic from Yesterday



Snow with cold temps in the low 20’s and negative wind chill values as cold as -15.  Winds will be much calmer, between 15-20 mph with the strongest windspeeds along the divide, with gust around 30 mph.  

The next system hits Thursday


Spring Break/March Calendars

We posted our spring break forecast, thru April 1st on yesterday’s blog, in calendar format.  It is pretty simple to use, the dark blue squares are probable storms, and the light blue squares are 60% chance, meaning if we have enhanced teleconnectivity, there will be extra waves, or more snow!
