On Sunday I was thinking 3-4 feet for the week including the Monday storm. It now looks like we will pick up 3-4 feet the next 2 days on top of the Monday storm. As the storm approaches the coast the amount of moisture it will deliver continues to bump up on the forecast models.
Clouds are already on the increase from a weak storm that will move through on Monday. There is not much moisture with this system but the cold air associated with it will help to fluff the totals. Expecting 1-3 inches at the base and 2-4 inches up top by Monday night.
The cold for the weekend has been well advertised as we will drop into the 20's and 30's for highs through next week and teens at night. That doesn't do much for us this weekend as the wind tonight into Saturday will be howling as if we are getting a big storm but at most we will get a flake or two. It will make for some cold wind chills on Sa
Squaw Valley picked up 7 more inches Tuesday night into Wednesday morning bringing the 3 day total to 14 inches. We have a break with some nice weather through Friday before a couple weak systems will push through over the weekend.
We picked up 7 inches from the storm that moved through Sunday night into Monday. We won't have much of a break as the next storm moves in Tuesday night. This is a compact little storm dropping down from the North and it will bring more cold and a quick shot of snow.
The snow began falling on the mountain this evening and will continue overnight and through the day on Monday. The storm will be bringing in colder air and up to a foot of fluffy snow on the mountain.
Plenty of sun Thursday and Friday before we have a pattern change this weekend. Light snow will push into Tahoe on Saturday followed by some heavier snowfall for Sunday into Monday. Rigth now it looks like a dusting to a couple of inches for Saturday and then we could see a half foot or more Sunday into Monday.
A series of storms have been moving inland just to our North this week and the final one will move through Tuesday night bringing us a dusting of snow. Looking at most of the forecast models it looks like we will pick up a dusting, but the European model suggest we could pick up as much as a few inches by Wednesday Morning
After the final flakes fell on Monday we added up the totals and came up with 60 inches at high camp. That was 5 feet over the 4 day period of Friday - Monday. There is a nice base out there now as the weather takes a break this weekend.
There is a storm coming onshore currently but it weakening as it approaches. We should see some snow showers tonight and Thursday along with some colder air, but not expecting more than a dusting. These storms are just bits and pieces breaking off from the jet stream well to our North in Canada.
