Temps today 55-60 degrees to be replaced with temps of 25-30 degrees by Wednesday. A storm is currently approaching the coast and will begin to move in overnight. Snow will begin to fall over Tahoe by noon tomorrow. It may start as rain at lake level but quickly turn to snow down to 5000 ft. It looks like a quick 3-6 inches Tuesday afternoon with the heavier snow associated with the storm. Then the forecast gets a little tricky. The storm is going to stall over CA through Wednesday and then bring upslope snow to the Sierra Wednesday night as the storm moves East. The trick is where the bands of snow set up. Expect cloudy and cold conditions with periods of snow Tuesday into Thursday morning. We should clear out on Thursday but not warm up. Models are showing a general 3-6 additional inches from the snowshowers by Wednesday night. So storm totals look to 6-12 inches, 6 at lake level 12 on the mountains, and 12-18 inches on the crest by the time everything is done Thursday morning.

Looks like we are dry over the weekend but not that warm with temps in the 40′s, maybe hitting 50 at lake level. Looks like another cold storm on tap for the middle of next week. The jetstream is continuing to be active across the Pacific so it will be interesting to see if that is it after next week. Right now it looks like dry conditions for the beginning of May, but no big warm-ups in sight. BA
