Tahoe just got buried in snow.
Squaw just saw 97″ of snow in the past 7 days. Squaw has seen the most snow they’ve ever recorded in January – 269″ in January as of today. That’s 23 feet of snow in 23 days…
Now NOAA is hinting at ANOTHER Atmospheric River storm in Tahoe next week.
"Forecast models have been indicating another system approaching the west coast for the start of February backed by a 130kt+ jet. The surface gradient and 50+ knots at 700 should increase wind speeds through all areas and mix out inversions on Wednesday. Simulations have been trending wetter during this time frame as have atmospheric river tools. Therefore have introduced precipitation chances on Wednesday, which will likely need to be increased if the trend continues. - NOAA Reno, NV today
