Monday Rain & Snow For Tahoe

By

US National Weather Service Reno Nevada: A strong cold front drops out of the Pacific Northwest into northern California and western Nevada on Monday. Snow levels will start just below 6000 feet and continue to fall to valley floors through the day into Monday evening. Snow accumulations will be light with 1 to 3 inches possible for the Eastern Sierra and Tahoe Basin. The foothills along the Sierra front could receive a dusting up to about an inch, and locations farther east will get little to no accumulation since precipitation will be mixed during the daylight hours. Isolated thunderstorms will even be possible from eastern Modoc County in California extending southeastward into central Nevada. This can be seen highlighted in red in the left image below. By Monday evening, the cold front will have dropped farther south with some dry cold air pushing in from the north. Light snow showers will linger and could allow for some very light accumulations in western Nevada. Ground temperatures should be sufficient to keep road surface clear below 5000 feet, but locations above 5000 feet will be cold enough to allow for snow to stick. Another concern Monday night will be temperatures falling below freezing causing moisture left on road surfaces, especially those that are elevated, to freeze. Drivers should be prepared to deal with slick road surfaces for Tuesday morning’s commute.
