Strong, Warm Spring Storm on tap for Friday, Saturday

A strong storm is headed our way. This storm does appear to be the first and strongest in a series of storms that will change the pattern back to a wet, windy and eventually chilly trend.

At it's peak, which will be around Saturday @ noon the storm looks like this:

We will start to see a change on late Thursday and then a few waves of moisture come in finally followed by the main brunt of the storm.

Snow levels for this event will be very high. I am guessing most Tahoe resorts will see all rain as the snow levels come in above 10,000 feet and remain there for most of the event. When the cold air finally makes its way down, the moisture will have mostly exited the area.

This will definitely bring flood risk to our area and some rain, as much as 1/2 inch is coming to the leeward valleys. Check with the NWS if you live in flood prone areas.

Temperatures will recover quickly on Sunday and Monday ahead of the next storm.

The next storm shows up on Tuesday and will be much colder with snow levels below 8,000 feet. It is moving slower, does not have as much precip and should stick around through Friday the 13th. Expect greater detail this weekend.
