NOAA is talking about the possibility of an Atmospheric River hitting Lake Tahoe, CA/NV on Thursday.
Snow levels are forecast to begin very high at about 10,000′ before dropping as low as 6,000′.
NOAA expects that only areas above 8,000′ will see significant snowfall.
NOAA Forecast Discussion Excerpts:
LONG TERM...Wednesday through next weekend... Focus is still on the Thursday to Friday atmospheric river, with the models continuing to slow the timing down. Confidence is increasing that the upper low ahead of it will get drawn in with additional moisture. Behind it, strong high pressure is expected to develop that will result in quiet weather that may last through the end of the month. The details... The bulk of the rainfall is expected to occur Thursday night into Friday morning with the best moisture and good forcing. Snow levels will start high, near 10000 feet, then possibly drop to near 6000 feet on the back side. Most of the precip will occur ahead of the front so impacts to passes will be minimal except the highest ones (those above 8000 feet). Much cooler Friday as the precip tapers to showers. - NOAA Reno, NV today
