Lake Tahoe ski resorts just got up to 12″ of snow yesterday/last night.  3 Lake Tahoe ski resorts and Mammoth are in the Top 10 Deepest Snowpacks in the USA right now.

NOAA is now looking forward to up to 3 more storms headed to California from December 4th-11th.  They’re forecasting storms hitting California on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday.  We like it.

NOAA is saying:

“we’ll have unsettled weather every few days for the next 1-2 weeks.” -NOAA Sacramento, CA today

Boom!

Storm systems are lining up nicely for at least the next week or so!

A few light showers are possible this morning across Northern California, but drier weather will begin to settle in this afternoon. The next weather system will bring rain and snow mainly along and north of Interstate 80. It seems likely that we’ll have unsettled weather every few days for the next 1-2 weeks.

It’s worth noting that none of these storm systems are looking particularly strong for NorCal. More importantly however, there are no signs of us entering an extended dry phase, which is encouraging!

NOAA’s long range hazard outlooks are calling for “Heavy Precipitation” possible in Lake Tahoe from December 4th – 18th.  Fingers crossed.
