First storms has moved through the area. Snow totals are close to forecast with resorts along the crest reporting 8-10 inches and resorts East of the crest and South of the lake reporting 6-8 inches overnight. Snow levels stayed just above lake level with not much accumulation in Truckee. I got 2 inches here at my house on the North Shore of the lake. Snow showers shut down a bit earlier than expected this morning, but may still see a linger shower or two with very light accumulations.

Next storm moves in tonight into Saturday. It’s looking like the storm is going to split with the strongest part of the storm is going to go South of us. Looking for about the same accumulations as the first storm, except looking for better accumulation at lake level since it is a colder storm.

Models are starting to agree that the cut off low for Wednesday will come into CA and bring us light snow instead of heading South down the coast. This is in response to the idea that the ridge will build over Utah instead of closer to CA. This would also allow subsequent storms to start rolling in by the weekend. Looking like it could be a snowy President’s Day weekend. Stay tuned………BA
