Pattern to Remain Active for Next Several Weeks
As the current storm winds down it will produce just over a foot of snow in total for the Carson Range and Mt. Rose in particular, which was about what we expected.
This pattern of storms every 3-5 days with warming temperatures ahead of the storms will continue into the foreseeable future. These storms are dropping out of the north so the snow levels remain low for this time of year.
We will warm in the next several days ahead of our next storm which is on tap for very early on Monday morning (March 15):
This is again a pretty fast moving and cooler storm that should bring all snow to all Tahoe resorts. There appears to be only a minor shadowing effect so we expect Mt. Rose to pick up an additional 4-8 inches of snow from this storm.
As has been the pattern, temps will warm ahead of the next storm. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to look more than a 5-7 days out with any certainty. Having said that, we are tracking a fantasy storm that could come in about 2 weeks, that storm has some serious potential of a very large spring storm, but at this point, our confidence is not quite there yet.
