Fall can be very important for Lake Tahoe. Remember 2011 when we got 5 feet of snow the day before opening day at Squaw? If we have a good Fall in Tahoe, it’s nothing but laughs and smiles. Fall is when we expect low snow, the white ribbon of death, and monotonous laps on made made snow.
If Fall is good, then we’re skiing pow, hucking cliffs, throwing tricks, and exploring the mountain.
Brian Allegretto is our local long range forecast ninja. Here is what Brian has to say about 2013 Fall in Lake Tahoe, CA.
“In the immediate future we should see this cold trough that has been hanging around back off the coast with the ridge over the Rockies shifting towards the West Coast. That will bring back warmer temps the second half of the month. The long-range forecasts are hinting at the return of a trough in the beginning of September and even some precip making it into the Pacific NW. Chance of a dusting up high? Maybe, we’ll have to watch as we get closer to September.
The long-range climate models have a warm and dry Fall forecasted overall. The CFS starts to warm the water in the NINO regions towards El Nino conditions going into Winter, and warms the water off the West Coast. The Jamstec is slower with the warming along the Equator and still cold along the coast.” – Brian Allegretto/opensnow.com
