Update 9 p.m.:
Reader Reports page is updated. Looks like 1-2 feet fell around the lake and Truckee with the 2nd wave, bringing lake level totals to 2-3.5 feet. Right on track with the forecast. I also posted some pics sent to me by readers in Prosser and Tahoe Donner.
As of 9 p.m. 3rd wave has arrived bringing heavy snow to the area once again. Still expecting an additional 6-12 inches overnight.
Have to keep an eye on the Tuesday storm & associated Arctic front. It looks to arrive Tuesday morning and will drop around a foot or more at lake level and 2+ feet on the mountains. 4 day totals look to be the highest since at least November of 1997.
Things finally clear Tuesday night with record lows possible Tuesday – Thursday nights. Current forecast lows for Truckee and South Lake are below zero and break records set back in the 1960′s. Brrrrr
From this Morning:
Almost halfway through the 4-day snowstorm cycle now. Still waiting on a bunch of resorts to report but so far it looks like they got the 2-3 feet overnight bringing totals to 3-5 feet so far. Reports out of Truckee are another foot or more so they should be at 2 feet or more now. Still waiting for reports around the lake so send me your totals. Would love to hear from Tahoe Donner.
Snow this morning will taper off to scattered showers this afternoon. Another wave is flying down the coast and will arrive tonight into Monday morning. Expecting another 6-12 inches at lake level and 12-18 inches above 7000 ft. by Monday afternoon.
We get another break Monday afternoon and into the night before another strong wave bring some heavy snow into Tuesday. That could drop another 1-2 feet. That would be another 1-2 feet at lake level and 2-3 feet above 7000 ft. between today & Tuesday night, bringing 4 day totals to 3-5 feet at lake level and 5-8 feet above 7000 ft. Not a bad start to the ski season. Stay tuned as we have to watch the track of the Monday and Tuesday storms closely for how much snow we’ll get.
A nice Thanksgiving weekend with cold nights and mild days. Storms don’t stay away for long though as there is a storm moving in for next Sunday and the snow levels start below lake level. Chances for storms continue that week. BA
