I was in Reno for dinner last night and it was a white out blizzard with several inches on the ground. The heavy snow band set up on the North side of Truckee into Reno and stalled there all night. Places around Reno received a foot of snow overnight. The band was forecasted to shift slightly South and bring us at least 6 inches overnight on the North end of the lake, but it has barely made it South if I-80.
It did clip Some of the resorts. Take a look at the resort totals tab. Sugarbowl got 5 inches, Mt. Rose 6 inches, Northstar and Boreal 2 inches overnight. Only a dusting here at the house on the Northshore of the lake and no snow at the resorts along 89. A band set up yesterday afternoon along South Lake bringing those resorts down there 4-5 inches. So some resorts got the forecasted amount and some got none.
Currently the snow band is still stalled to our North through Reno. It is forecasted to finally drop South today and combine with the North end of a storm coming in just to our South off the Pacific. El Nino is still doing its usual trick to Northern CA of pulling the storms to our South. Looking for 3-6 inches today with 4-8 above 7000 ft. Resorts that got the snow last night will hit the 1 foot mark for the weekend and the resorts that got none will fall short.
Storm still on track Wednesday to bring moderate amounts of snow in the 6-12 inch range. Stronger storm for Saturday approaches the coast. Looking a little more like it splits with the heaviest snow going into Southern CA, but we still get a decent amount. For the El Nino lovers remember how many of these storms it is causing to go South of us.
Progressive pattern should continue with storms every 2-3 days through the first week of March. BA
