The guys over at Tahoeloco.com do a great job of keeping us all up to date on the Tahoe weather. Here is their latest outlook.
Tahoeloco.com Update June 10, 2010
It's shaping up to be a windy weekend for Tahoe and the Northern Sierra.
A low pressure system sweeping through Oregon and Northern California is bringing cooler temperatures to the region and setting up conditions for a dry northerly wind today through Saturday. Gusts at the ridges could top 40 mph Friday into Saturday.
Any precipitation from this system should be light and confined to areas north of Tahoe. High temperatures should bottom out today at about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year before starting a slow and modest warming trend. Highs will be in the 50s around the Lake today and Friday and in the 60s Saturday and Sunday.
The low pressure system should be east of the Sierra and centered over the Great Basin in Nevada by late Friday. But the warm-up will be slow. We will be lucky to see highs just reaching normal by Monday as even the weak ridge of high pressure that was in the forecast to build over the region has been pushed back into early next week.
So for now it looks like our chilly spring is going to continue almost straight through to the start of summer.

WEEKEND OUTINGS: Northstar mountain bike park opens Friday
For those of you who prefer riding a lift to riding your bike uphill, Northstar's mountain bike park is scheduled to open Friday, even as snow still caps the top of the resort. The park will be serviced by the Big Springs gondola, and the resort says its lower trail network and at least two of the three lines in the jump park will be open. Hours are 10 am to 7 pm Friday and 10 am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. Lift tickets this weekend will be $29 for an all-day pass and $10 for a single ride. You can rent a bike for $75 for the day.
