First Real Snowfall For Tahoe In Almost A Month

It has been almost a month since Tahoe has received any real snow but thats about to change. Starting on Thursday Tahoe will see a change in the weather pattern resulting in some new snow for the area. The amounts are modest but hey its something.  

SNOW THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING.. NOAA.gov

A BAND OF LIGHT SNOW WILL DEVELOP BEHIND A STRONG COLD FRONT. THE BEST CHANCES FOR HEAVIER SNOWFALL WILL BE FOR A FEW HOURS AFTER THE COLD FRONT PASSAGE. SNOW WILL BEGIN ACROSS THE SIERRA THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND THEN SPREAD ACROSS WESTERN NEVADA THURSDAY EVENING. FOR THE SIERRA AND THE LAKE TAHOE BASIN…EXPECT 2-3 INCHES BELOW 7000 FEET AND 3 TO 6 INCHES ABOVE 7000 FEET. FOR WESTERN NEVADA VALLEYS EXPECT UP TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW BY FRIDAY MORNING.

SNOW FRIDAY…

FOR THE SIERRA AND MOST OF WESTERN NEVADA SNOW SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH FRIDAY. STRONGER SHOWERS MAY BRING UP TO 2 INCHES OF ADDITIONAL SNOW. HOWEVER…EAST OF HIGHWAY 95 A SECOND SNOW BAND MAY DEVELOP FRIDAY. THE FAR EASTERN PORTIONS OF PERSHING AND CHURCHILL COUNTIES MAY RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL 2 TO 5 INCHES FROM THIS SECOND BAND OF SNOW.

WINDS AND COLD TEMPERATURES…

SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE THURSDAY AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT WITH GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH IN VALLEYS AND UP TO 75 MPH ACROSS SIERRA RIDGES. WIND SPEEDS WILL BE SIMILAR FRIDAY BUT WIND DIRECTIONS WILL SHIFT FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTH. TEMPERATURES WILL BE MUCH COLDER FRIDAY AND COMBINED WITH GUSTY WINDS WILL CREATE COLD CONDITIONS WITH WIND CHILLS GENERALLY IN THE 20S AND TEENS.

IMPACTS…

SLICK ROADS ARE POSSIBLE THURSDAY EVENING…ESPECIALLY LATER IN THE EVENING AS ROAD SURFACES COOL AFTER SUNSET. DANGEROUS ROAD CONDITIONS ARE MORE LIKELY FOR THE FRIDAY MORNING COMMUTE AS TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO FALL OVERNIGHT.

      Something is better than nothing!

      Of course, THIS is the time Caltrans decides to test out their brand new “tow- plow” double lane snow plow machine over 1-80 at Donner Summit…. what could POSSIBLY go wrong ? We’ll have wannabe texans trying to pass on the tire chains lanes……

        If you were a real skier and lived in Tahoe then you wouldn’t worry about traffic on 80 ya gaper!

        All that beer you drink, and all that cheap plastic crap you buy at Walmart and over in Reno had to come over the Donner Summit in trucks from the ports and breweries on the west coast. All those roads and all that Caltrans crap and employees are paid for by people paying taxes on their income and properties, little hovel- renter. No worries about traffic, just trying to avoid the Bay area SUV “road- gapers.”
