Yep, it’s snowing in Lake Tahoe right now at 4pm PST on September 21st, 2013.
Snow levels are down to about 8,000 feet right now and should drop a bit tonight.
***Update: As of 4:15pm, it was snowing in the town of Truckee.***
We have confirmed snow at Mt. Rose highway, Tahoe Donner ski resort, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Donner Summit, Kirkwood, and Mt. Rose ski resort. We’re sure there’s lots more out there.
Tomorrow will be sunny and we’ll get even more confirmation of snow up high as it’ll be easy to photograph on a beautiful sunny day.
The forecast for Tahoe shows another storm with snow coming in next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.
