Several Storms Take Aim at Tahoe; Models back off Major Weather Event
Happy New Year!
We are tracking several storms the first is poised to hit Monday:
All models have consolidated and we think this could bring 8-12 inches to the Carson Range.
In a year when the models are constantly refactoring the weather pattern, it is hard to be sure about anything else. The pattern will remain active, a chance does exist for a major snow event, but right now the models have the storms being pushed just slightly north.
The next storm will show up on the 6th of January. This storm will approach the West Coast and then split. Where that split occurs is going to determine how much precip we get. Right now it could be between 2-12 inches, we are confident that this will not be a major producer.
High pressure is well to our south. That is forecast to move north and push the storms into Oregon and Washington.
So to sum it all up; we remain in a very active weather pattern. This pattern will continue for at least the next several weeks. Tahoe will see a fair amount of snow, but we are not predicting the big storm, at this point, with any certainty. There are several storms that could have a profound impact on our weather with a slight shift in the jet. When/if that happens, we will report accordingly.
Everybody, have a fantastic 2021!
