Another Storm on the Way!

Get ready, here comes round two. An additional 4 feet or more of light powder snow could fall on Tahoe by the end of this weekend.

With a storm this cold we could see snow as fall down as sea level. TahoeWeatherDiscussion.com tells us, “snow levels could drop close to sea level Friday night in Northern CA. That means you could see snow in Redding, Chico, Sacramento, San Francisco, and even down pretty low near L.A. although I don’t think it will snow in the city. Last time that San Francisco had measurable snow of 1 inch was February 5th 1976.” – tahoeweatherdiscussion.com
