The road to spring as this winter will just not die. Mentioned in the last post a weak storm for the end of this weekend and that is looking more likely now. Cold front last night and a reinforcing shot of cold air today will keep temps in the 40′s through the weekend and near 50 in the valleys.

Next storm begins to move in Sunday night. This is a cold storm but not as cold as the last few. Temps will drop back into the 30′s and 40′s Sunday and staying there through Tuesday. Snow levels will be down near lake level with this storm but may be rain a bit lower like in Truckee to start. Snow showers begin Sunday night and could last into Tuesday. With temps in the 40′s at lake level not expecting any accumulation during the day and only light amounts at night. On the mountains expecting to be measuring in inches. By next week I believe Alpine will be the only mountain still open where you may get just enough to make fresh tracks by Tuesday morning, we’ll see.

By the end of next week the ridge begins to bulge up from the baja of Mexico and by the weekend of the 14th we should see some really warm temps that last through the at least the 3rd week of May. Like I mentioned before with the fading El Nino, the end of the spring could be quite warm once the storms stop. BA
