We know two things for sure:  

1.  If this storm happens it will be the official beginning of winter stoke in Tahoe

2.  If this storm happens people will be out skiing powder in Tahoe and we’ll be reporting on it

7 Day liquid precipitation forecast for the USA showing Tahoe getting some.

NOAA:

IT STILL APPEARS THAT A FOOT OF SNOW IS POSSIBLE
 IN THE HIGH ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRA WITH SOME ACCUMULATING SNOW
 DOWN TO 5000 POSSIBLE. SNOW LEVELS LOOK TO START AROUND 7000-7500
 FEET AS ALMOST ALL THE PRECIP NOW APPEARS TO BE ALONG OR JUST
 BEHIND THE FRONT IN THE COLDER AIR. THEY THEN LOOK TO FALL TO 4500
 FEET SATURDAY MORNING. AS FOR SPILLOVER INTO WESTERN NEVADA, THE
 NORTH-SOUTH ORIENTATION OF THE FRONT ISN`T THE MOST FAVORABLE, BUT
 A BRIEF PERIOD IS LIKELY.
