Today the snow was super deep.Weekend storm totals of 5-8 feet. The snow kept falling all day turning powder conditions into “This is nuts!” conditions. The snow has been just as deep down low making the woods off Red Dog out of this world.
Here is what tahoeweatherdiscussion.com had to say about the latest storm.
“NWS reported a pressure reading in the center of the storm around 2 a.m. of 981 mb. That is a category 1 hurricane pressure and one of the lowest recorded pressures recorded in the past several decades according to the NWS. This has also been causing high winds on the crest which has closed I-80 this morning & some of the resorts for today.
The center of the low is moving Northeast through Northern CA and is pushing a cold front towards the Sierra. That will increase the snowfall intensity this morning. Heavy snow will continue through the day and into tonight as the front is slow to move through. Once the cold front clears the snow becomes showery overnight and into Monday.
Total liquid on the models through Monday morning is still the same at 2-2.5 inches. So expecting 1-2 feet at lake level and 2-3 feet above 7000 ft., possibly more on the crest. Snow ratios above 7000 ft. will be around 15:1 so light snow but not as light as the last storm. Weekend storm totals on the resorts should end up around 5-8 feet.” tahoeweatherdiscussion.com
