Starting today, a continuous stream of moisture is expected to hit Lake Tahoe and by a continuous stream of moisture we mean snow, snow and more snow.
The storm should go a little like this: winter storm watch goes into effect officially tomorrow (Thursday) night with a quick dump into Friday morning; 12 -18 inches are expected. Good news is that precipitation is starting tonight and all told, it looks like over the next few days there should potentially be 2-3 feet of new snow on the mountains by Saturday.
Tahoe is enjoying what seems like an endless winter (or at least compared to its western state counterparts). Squaw Valley alone picked up 166 inches in March and April is continuing to bring snow. Last day of skiing at Squaw will be April 29, 2012. Avid Tahoe skiers are crossing their fingers that this date will be pushed back later into May. Only time will tell, because looking beyond this weekend it’s hard to tell what the rest of April will bring. Spring weather conditions are anticipated, but after a “Miracle March” no one is quite ready in Lake Tahoe to turn in their skis for the season.
