Storm(s) Update - Potential for 10+ feet of Snow in Next 2 Weeks

We are growing more and more confident that winter is here and the storm that is knocking at our door is the first in a series of storms that should deliver copious amounts of snow to both the mountains and valleys.

First things first, both the GFS and EC models are in nearly complete alignment with this next storm. The timing looks to start late tomorrow afternoon and last though Wednesday. Then the low crawls out, but not before delivering additional snow on Thursday and Friday. This storm has strengthened and could deliver 1-3 feet of snow to all Tahoe resorts. We are now leaning in the 2-3 feet for Mt. Rose. The potential does exist for more.


We have a number of blocking factors that are going to slow these storms down. That will cause them to linger over Tahoe and dump.

The next storm is slated for Saturday night and it is large:


This is also a much warmer storm that will impact So Cal more than No Cal. Snow levels could hover in the 8,000 foot range with this one. It too will stall and deliver an enormous amount of much needed precip.

The next storm shows up on the following Tuesday (December 3). It too looks huge, perhaps a little cooler, but time will tell:



Finally, how much precip will these 3 storms produce?


Most areas around Tahoe are looking at 10+ inches of liquid. Some areas will be closer to 20 inches of liquid precip. That could could come out to .... 10-20 feet of snow in the next 15 days.

Stay Tuned ...
