Bryan Allegretto of OpenSnow.com is calling for 85-92% of average snowfall in Lake Tahoe, CA/NV this 2016/17 winter.
“I think 85-92% of average snowfall for this upcoming season is a good starting point. What happens with the warm blob and where the ridge sits near the West Coast this Winter will also be a factor to watch.” – Bryan Allegretto/OpenSnow.com on August 22nd, 2016
85-92% of 500″ (Kirkwood & Sugar Bowl’s average annual snowfall) is 425″-460″.
85-92% of 450″ (Squaw Valley’s average annual snowfall) is 383-414″.
We’ll take that!
Bryan gets into LOTS of detail in his forecast and explains exactly why he’s forecasting 85-92% on OpenSnow.com.
“What I like to do for the Winter forecast is to look back historically at Winters that had conditions similar to what we are expecting for this upcoming Winter, and then looking at what kind of snowfall we saw. That has worked fairly well in the past.”- Bryan Allegretto/OpenSnow.com on August 22nd, 2016
