Olympic Valley CA, 9:45a.m.
We were all hoping for some fresh snow for today but it is looking like the new weather system that is moving into the Tahoe area is not going to reach us until later this afternoon. For now it is overcast skies and much lower temps then what we saw for much of the week. Weather Geek sent out their latest weather predictions, which can be accessed HERE The second prolonged Tahoe dry spell of a young 2009 is about to end, but the big dump of snow we have been waiting for might still prove elusive. A low pressure system is setting up off the coast of Central California this morning and should move inland as it swings to the southeast later today. That will bring snow to the Sierra. But the strongest energy associated with the system will be heading south, toward Mono County and Mammoth Mountain. Tahoe might see six inches of new snow, or even less. Snow levels should start out around 6000 feet by mid-day or Thursday afternoon before dropping over night. tahoeloco.com/weather-geek/ *From the sounds of it it’s looking like Mammoth is going to be the place to be this weekend. If you have the time and resources it might be your best bet for getting the most out of this system.* I will be heading up on the hill for a full report butI am not getting my hopes up for anything good.
