Forecast Summary

The fourth storm in the series moves out of Utah today around lunchtime and works its way through Colorado today, exiting late tonight.  Storm 5 moves into California this morning and hits Lake Tahoe around noon.  This is not a Tahoe like storm, as the winds will be mild and freezing levels around lake level.  There is a little ridge that is disrupting the flow that is pointed out by the squiggly line.  

That will work itself out by Wednesday afternoon, as the next storm hits the coast.  These next series of charts show the jet stream with the next storm carved out of the flow.  That will grow as the storm moves towards the coast by Wednesday morning.  The last shot is the surface chart of the incoming storm.

Forecast for Wednesday




Light snow continues today throughout Colorado as this system spins its way out by this evening.  Expect another 2-4 today before the system exits.  It will be pleasant with light winds between 5-10 mph and temperatures in the upper 20’s to near 30 degrees. 


Expect another 1-3 for the Central and northern mountains with 1-2 for resorts along the divide.  


The next system moves in and this one will be weak.  Expect another 1-3 for most resorts, with the most moisture around the northern mountains.


Another 2-5 for most resorts today as the system moves out by 2 or 3 o’clock today.  Temperatures will be in the low 20’s with light winds 5-10 mph.  The next system will move in tonight, but it is not looking like this will bring much accumulation.  Tomorrow will have scattered showers with little additional accumulation. 

Lake Tahoe
