6-15 more inches being reported at resorts East of the crest in the past 24 hours as of 6 a.m. Resorts up along the crest reporting 13-20 more inches. Storm totals are now 16-24 inches East of the crest and 25-38 along the crest. Totals since Monday are now 32-44 inches East of the crest and 42-60 inches along the crest.

When I refer to the crest it’s the resorts from Sugar Bowl down the West side of Tahoe to Kirkwood. Lake level reports as of last night were 7-24 inches from East of the lake up to Tahoe Donner respectively. Totals for the week at lake level are now 20-26 inches all the way around. Resort Totals and Reader Reports pages were updated as of 6 a.m.
Last shot of heavier snow pushing in this morning. Snow showers could linger into the evening before tapering off. Expecting another 3-6 inches at lake level, 4-8 inches above 7000 ft., 5-10 inches above 8000 ft., and up to a foot on the crest by tonight. Most resorts along the crest should be in the 4-6 foot range for the week by tomorrow, 3-4 feet East of the crest, and 2-3 feet at lake level.
We will do a final tally in tomorrow morning and look at the season totals. As of this morning the resorts are up to 33% of average snowfall for the season.
Next storm moves in to our North and East on Tuesday. This could bring some light snow and some colder air. The models are split on what happens next weekend with the Euro keeping us dry until the following week, but the GFS has been consistent on several storm, some strong, moving through for about a week starting next Saturday. Let’s get through this storm and then over the weekend we can start tracking the next set of storms. BA
