Storm is set to roll in tonight into Saturday. I am sticking to the same thinking on snow totals as yesterday. Snow level will be above lake level for the initial part of the storm tonight which means rain in Truckee and at the lake. Models showing around 6-9 inches where it stays all snow up on the mountains which will be above 7000 ft., maybe a bit lower. The thing that has been consistent the past 24 hours is the second push of moisture as the main low comes in to our South Saturday morning. Mammoth gets hammered but we get the northern edge with snow levels down to 5000 ft. this drops another 6-9 inches for everyone.

Therefore, I’m sticking to 6-12 inches at lake level with 12-18 inches above 7000 ft., and up to 2 feet on the crest. Totals will go up as you go South so resorts South of the lake look to do the best.

Wednesday storm still on track and it is a much colder storm. Not a huge storm but since it’s cold we could be looking at another foot of snow. Another cold storm on track for the weekend behind this storm.

Going into the second week of March there is the hint at the jetstream coming under the ridge to our North once again for a stormy period. More on that later. BA
