Video for the 2010 Cushing Crossing – Squaw Valley USA
Heading up to Tahoe this weekend for the last days of skiing at Squaw and of course the Cushing Crossing? Well here is the weather outlook for you courtesy of Tahoeloco.com – Weather Geek
More unseasonably cool weather is on tap for the Sierra this weekend.
Today’s highs should be about 10 degrees below normal, with gusty winds approaching 50 mph along the ridges, especially south of Tahoe. Friday will be a little warmer but still below normal for this time of year.
On Saturday another wave of energy from the Pacific is forecast to move inland. This one looks like a bit of an “inside slider,” meaning that the system is on track to move inland over the Pacific Northwest and then drop down the backside of the Cascades and the Sierra.
The storm could bring some rain or snow to far Northern California and some precipitation to the Tahoe region, especially the Eastern Slope late Saturday into Sunday.
A weak ridge of high pressure is forecast to build by Sunday, bringing at least a brief warming trend to the region before more unsettled weather approaches early next week. The Memorial Day Holiday could be the warmest and calmest day of the week, but it still won’t feel like summer is around the corner.
