NOAA is talking about a big storm clobbering Lake Tahoe, CA this weekend. Open Snow is talking about it bringing up to 4-feet of snow.
We need this storm bad because there is no snow in Tahoe right now. This storm could be the key to getting ski resorts open in Tahoe. After this potential storm, it looks like high pressure will build back in. We need this storm, people!
Just to give a general idea 6-7 days out, the GFS and European forecast models are showing enough liquid for 1-2 feet at lake level and 2-3 feet on the mountains with up to 4 along the crest. – Opensnow.com
There is still a decent chance for a winter storm to push into the west at the end of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Current forecast models are indicating the main impacts will be late Sunday into Monday. Forecaster confidence is currently medium for a storm pushing into the west, but low regarding timing and storm details, which are likely to change through the week as we get closer to the event. There is the potential for slick roads and travel impacts especially in the Sierra and snow levels may drop below 5500 feet. Check back for the latest updates! – NOAA.gov
