Round 3 actually did happen, but you wouldn’t really know it living in the Tahoe Basin. Most of the snow got caught up on the crest all day yesterday, so it did snow hard all day at the resorts along the crest. Most resort along the crest reporting around 14″ from yesterday’s storm. Check out the resort totals tab, it shows that now most resorts along the crest have 3-4 feet so far this week. Once the snow finally did clear the crest I picked up about 4 inches at my house on the lake overnight.
Next storm has already moved in and will last into the night. This storm is much stronger than yesterday’s storm. Looking for 12-18 inches at lake level, with 18-24 inches above 7000 ft., and 24-30 inches along the crest by tomorrow morning.
Next storm moves in from the South tomorrow. Looking like the heaviest snow will stay just to the South of Tahoe. Preliminary estimates are 6-12 inches at lake level, with 12-18 inches above 7000 ft., and 18-24 inches along the crest by Friday. Check back tomorrow morning for an update of projected totals.
Snow showers may linger into Saturday morning with additional light accumulations. Looking dry Saturday and Sunday ahead of the next approaching storm. Models still not in agreement with the storms strength, timing, or track. Let’s just get through the next two days of heavy snow and then hopefully things will be more clear on the Monday storm by then.
Next week the storms look more spaced out with maybe 3 storms over the course of the week. The first week of February looks stormy with the possibility of a Pineapple Connection developing. Stay tuned……..BA
