NOAA is talking about snow down to 5,500′ in Tahoe this weekend on Sunday.  A few inches of snow are forecast at higher elevations.

Squaw Valley will be open on Saturday and Sunday.  Heads up for closures due to high winds and snow.

Hard to believe this is the forecast in mid-June!

It’s already snowing in Tahoe now:

“Snow in June! This image taken shortly before noon from the UNR Seismological Lab web camera appeared to show a mix of light rain, snow and fog on the top of Slide Mountain (elevation 9650 feet). A few more snow and rain showers are expected in the mountains around Lake Tahoe through this afternoon, with a better chance of snow showers Sunday and Sunday night which could even reach down to near lake level in the Tahoe basin!” – NOAA, today

“Dress accordingly for these weather conditions (not the calendar!) if planning outdoor activities Sunday. An unusually cold low pressure system will move into northern California and western Nevada on Sunday. This will bring rain and snow showers with possible isolated thunderstorms to the region. Snow accumulations will generally be limited to higher elevations of the northern Sierra where a couple of inches are possible, but a light dusting of snow may occur down to near lake level in the Tahoe basin, and in northeast California above 5500 feet by Sunday night.” – NOAA Reno, NV today

Mt. Lassen, CA is forecast to see 4-8″ of snow…

"As the deformation zone sets up Sunday into Sunday night over
Northeast CA, there will be a few localized areas in the Northern
Sierra and Lassen County (namely near Lassen Park and in the
Warner Mountains) that see heavier amounts of up to 4 to 8 inches
of snow." - NOAA Reno, NV today
