Was wrong on the few inches at best at lake level. 9 inches have fallen so far at the house on the North Shore of the lake this morning and it’s still snowing. With the snow coming from the East instead of the West the heavier snow fell on the East side of the lake. Too bad Mt. Rose is not reporting anymore because they probably got dumped on. The heavy snow band overnight setup just over and East of Lake Tahoe.

Heavenly was the winner for the first time this year, picking up 15 inches of snow in the past 24 hours. Squaw, Alpine, Sugarbowl were in the 10 inch range, and Kirkwood only got 4 inches this time. The resort totals page is updated with storm totals and season totals. Storm totals running higher than predicted at 13-20 inches across the resorts. Snow showers should finally taper off this afternoon with only light additional accumulations.

The sun returns on Friday with temps into the 40′s and 50′s. Could break 60 over the weekend at lake level and in Truckee. By Monday the next storm is ready to move in and temps begin to drop.

We will have a very similar storm next week that slowly drops down the coast bringing a few days in a row of cold and snow. We are actually in a blocking pattern right now which usually mean a ridge over us, but the ridge is to our East over the Rockies so the storm can still come in but they stall over CA and NV.

Spring should finally arrive by the first week of May with only a chance at weak systems with showers. By the second week of May we may finally see some above average temps. BA
