The Tahoe area is forecasted to receive some much needed snowfall this evening and into Wednesday morning with up to 10″ for the higher peaks reports NOAA.
The new snow will precede a strong cold front that will bring temps down from 46° today to 29° tomorrow. The storm will most likely favor the northern mountains while Mammoth only gets a couple inches.
“Snow begins to fall over Tuesday night bringing rapid accumulations along and just ahead of a strong cold front. While totals will not likely be excessive, the snowfall rates will be quite rapid.” – NWS Reno
That cold weather is welcome news for Tahoe residents who’ve been asking for nearly two weeks– ‘where’s winter?’ Look for Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine Meadows, and Mt Rose to see the biggest snow totals.
