Back After Summer

Hello fans of the Tahoe Weather Blog. I am back after a very busy summer. Please notice the new look of the site and comment as you see fit.

I unfortunately have not had time to blog about global warming, but plan to during the year. As we move through September, I am sure many of you have noticed changes in the weather. We know what is coming and this is the place to look for long term weather forecasts for the Northern and Central Sierra.

Looking slightly ahead, we will have some cooler weather today and tomorrow that could bring some precip to the mountains with snow flurries in the highest elevations of the Northern Sierra (Tahoe) and perhaps 2-4 inches of snow above 10,000 feet in the Central Sierra (Mammoth, Yosemite). Here is a quick look at the accumodel for 84 hour precip:

The Central Sierra could pick up as much as a half inch of liquid precip. At the high elevations that should be snow. Going to be a cool, wet night for the campers in Yosemite and the back country around there.

Looking forward, we have a stretch of some really seriously beautiful weather with sunny skies, calm winds and highs in the lower 80's for the next 7-10 days starting on Friday. So get out there and hit some balls, but do not forget, the Sierra winter comes on fast, so get those snow sticks tuned and waxed. Remember last year, Mammoth opened with nearly 5 feet of fresh snow on October 16th.

I love living here!
