Resorts picking up anywhere from 5-10 inches overnight with Kirkwood picking up 12 as the best dynamics of the storm were to our South. Picked up 5 inches here at the house on the North shore of the lake. Snow showers will continue today into tonight as the main low spins in off the Pacific and across Tahoe. Resorts could pick up an additional 6-9 inches by tomorrow morning which is where the 12-18 inch totals idea came from. At lake level I would say 3-6 inches, but that may be less or only on top of snow as the high sun angle can prevent accumulation even through the clouds this time of year. Temps won’t be as cold as last weeks storm, with highs in the 30′s today.
Things begin to dry out on Tuesday as the sun returns and temps begin to warm. Should be back in the 40′s by Wednesday and near 50 by Thursday and through the weekend on the mountains, upper 50′s at lake level. Wednesday night and Friday night a few snow showers could roll through but nothing more than a dusting expected. This nice weekend coming up will close out the season for some resorts with great conditions.
For the rest of the resorts that are still open into May, we have some more storms lined up. The next storm looks to possibly arrive next Tuesday bringing colder temps and snow once again. Beyond that it looks to dry out once again with the next storm potential about a week later.
I will be trying to get some stats together on all resorts over the next couple of weeks and should have a nice recap on the season by the first or second week of May. Will also be tracking next seasons snow potential all summer. Right now looks like a La Nina year on tap. BA
