Both EC and GFS weather models are suggesting a major spring storm could hit the Tahoe area in a little more than a week. Both models are suggesting that our first decent storm cycle in over a month is on the way for the last week of skiing at most of the Tahoe resorts.
This is not, by any means, unprecedented. In fact, this has been one of the worst springs in recent memory for storms. Large April storms are the rule not the exception. Most years are good for at least one and if you believe the weather models, a storm could be on the way.
Here is a look at the EC model forecast for the 7th of April:
The GFS model is showing a remarkably similar forecast. Here is a look at the precip potential for this storm:
Interestingly enough, the GFS has a series of storms coming in starting early next weekend and getting progressively stronger.
These models have been teasing us all year with storms that do not live up to their potential. Under achieving storms, so beware.
It is never too late for a change in the weather pattern, so bring on the storms.
