Much Advertised Storm To Move in Today

A weak to moderate storm will move into Tahoe today bringing rain and snow to the area. Following the storm will be a strong cold front that will drop temperatures significantly. We expect around 12-18 inches for snow through Christmas day for the Carson Range. More for the western side of the lake.

Behind the precip will be very cold air and a series of short wave sliders will reinforce that cold air through the end of the year bringing additional light snow, with another storm on tap for New Years Eve.

Snow levels for this event will drop down to 5,000 feet with the potential for up to 6 inches of snow for the leeward foothills.

This will certainly help the resorts around Tahoe but is will not be the answer to our snow prayers, nor does it look like next week's storm will bring a strong Sierra event. We are still looking out for that and are confident it will come.

We apologize for our absence but the day job got in the way.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to all!
