“Lake Tahoe and other reservoirs gained an incredible amount of water from the storm that moved through December 9th and 10th. Check out those numbers! It is unusual for Lake Tahoe to be nearing its natural rim during December.” – NOAA, today

The Atmospheric River storm that just clobbered Lake Tahoe in rain did one good thing:  It filled Lake Tahoe to its rim!

Lake Tahoe just gained 8,690,131,707 gallons of water and rose about 4″ in just 2 days last week!  Wow…

Lake Tahoe is now just 0.36 inches from its natural rim.  

The last time that Lake Tahoe was at its natural rim was on September 13th, 2016.

Another very wet, very warm, very rainy storm is headed to Tahoe this week.  Actually, two wet, warm, rainy storms are headed Tahoe’s way this week.

  1. We visited Lake Tahoe last Fall (2015) and the lake level was down…WAY DOWN! So we are ecstatic at this news!

    1. Someone’s all wet ! No way could the lake have been to its natural rim in September ! Show us your expertise,please !

      1. Hey Mike, thanks for the comment. We’re reporting what NOAA is reporting and what all the Lake Tahoe water level graphs are reporting. thanks.

    1. Normally the lake would hit its high after the snow melt, late summer. This storm should be frozen and stored as snow until spring but instead is coming in warm and dumping rain/rain runnoff directly jnto the Lake.

  2. The last time it was at natural rim looks like it was mid September if you look at the USGS water level data

    1. the natural rim of the lake is pretty low. the dam can hold about 6 feet of water above the rim. Midsummer in a good year it probably 3-4 feet above the rim.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
