We’ve already been saying it and it’s already been threatening to be a threat, but now it’s hitting its hardest, gaining an unruly taste, and becoming impossible to swallow. It = the now glaring perception that it might not snow until February…or later. It doesn’t help that forecasts continue to show us NOTHING.
Hope for snow is fading, therefore, learning to adapt is becoming a must (backcountry ice skating, mountain biking, swimming, hiking, kayaking the lake, boating, and drinking heavily).
The long range forecasts for Tahoe are dry…very dry.
There is one glimmer of hope, however. A few models and forecasts are showing a chance of rain/snow beginning on the 18th. That’s 9 days out and it’s beyond what most would even consider a long range forecast, but we’ll take it. We’ll call this the uber long range forecast and we’ll learn to love it if it’s true.
NOAA.GOV SHORT TERM FORECAST:
“TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNEDAY, HIGH PRESSURE REBUILDS OVER THE REGION AS THE CUTOFF LOW DIVES TO OFF THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST.”
NOAA.GOV LONG TERM FORECAST THRU MONDAY:
"HAVE KEPT THE FORECAST DRY...”
High pressure if forecasted to sit on top of Tahoe for at least another 6-10 days. That forecast takes us through to about the 16th of January. We are going to have to have fun in the sun for now and hope that the 18th is the day of promise…
