The storm doors might finally open for Northern California. Forecast models are showing a storm headed for Tahoe that could drop as much as 2-3 feet of snow at the higher elevations by Saturday. The only potential issues with the approaching storm would be snow levels. NOAA is forecasting snow levels around 7,000 feet or higher.
“Although a weak system will pass north of interstate 80 early this week, a second stronger system may bring higher chances for rain, snow, and gusty winds. Observational data across the eastern Pacific shows a significant moisture plume that will move into the west coast midweek, providing moisture for any systems that move into the region. Although there is high confidence for rain or snow between Wednesday and Friday, there is still some uncertainty in precipitation totals and snow levels.” – NOAA Reno, NV
