Update 4 p.m.:

Still on track. Snow will pick up now for the rest of the evening. Heavy snow overnight into Sunday. Additional accumulations of 1-2 feet at lake level and 2-3 feet above 7000 ft. That will put most locations around the lake and Truckee at 1.5 – 3 feet by Sunday afternoon, and resorts at 3-5 feet.

The models today have been trending West with the Tuesday storm which means more snow. We could see 6-12 inches of additional snow Sunday night through Monday with wave 3, and if the track stays West for wave 4 another 1-2 feet on Tuesday. That would put lake level at 3-5 feet by Wednesday and Resorts at 4.5 – possibly 8 feet in someplaces. Stay tuned as we track waves 3 & 4 for Monday and Tuesday.

From This Morning:

Cold front went through overnight and dropped 1-2 feet on the ski resorts, & 6-12 inches at the lake. Reports of 18-30 inches on the summits. A quick break this morning before the main storm moves in this afternoon.

Now that the temps have dropped the snowfall rates will double the rest of the weekend. Whatever you got overnight you should get twice that tonight into Sunday. Looking for 1-2 additional feet at lake level and 2-3 feet above 7000 ft. Only change is to lower amounts a little for Reno as a little more shadowing is being shown on the models. Still should pick up 3-6 in town and 6-12 in the foothills.

There are still 2 more waves coming down the coast for Sunday night and Monday night that could drop several more inches. That should put the total storm accumulations at 2-4 feet at lake level and 3-6 feet above 7000 ft. by Tuesday. How much snow falls with these two waves is still in question depending on their track.

We dry out for the Thanksgiving holiday before more storms come knocking on the door the week after. Resort totals are posted. I have a new page now called “Reader Reports”. Please email me your totals & I’ll put them on. BA
