South Lake Tahoe, CA just set a 30-year record on Monday, June 20, for the lowest high temperature recorded since 1995.

According to National Weather Service, the day’s highest temperature was 54 degrees, reported at Lake Tahoe Airport. This is about 20 degrees below average for this time of the year. Factoring in the sustained heavy winds, the real feel temperature was likely in the low-mid 40s and perhaps even colder.

Slightly warmer but possibly unsettled weather returns to the region into the weekend. Chances of thunderstorms and showers Thursday into Friday could bring fluctuating snow levels between 9,900 and 8,300 feet near Palisades Tahoe.

There are still two more weekends to enjoy the sunshine, good vibes, and slushy skiing at the Spring Skiing Capital. Hopefully, the cooler temps helped keep the snow in decent condition as crews work hard to prepare for this upcoming weekend. Celebrate July 4 in style for five days of skiing and riding during the closing weekend and the Freedom Fest.

For those already dreading the warm weather and lack of skiing, thinking deeply about colder winter days back on the snow, you can still get a taste of it.
