A cold front will move through tonight with a line of precip and falling snow levels. The models have pulled back on precip amounts.
A band of precip shifting South through Northern CA pushed over the Tahoe basin this morning. That is bringing some light rain showers this morning.
Good news for the new snowpack this week with the mild precip staying mostly to our North. It would be rain up to 9000 ft.
The snow levels fluctuated throughout the night but never climbed above 7500 ft. At 8200 ft. at high camp and up we picked up 38 more inches of snow between Saturday and Sunday morning. That brings the 4 day total to 5 feet.
We picked up 6 inches from the first system Wednesday night through Thursday night. Light snow is falling this morning.
A very interesting and complex trend on the forecast models over the past 24 hours. The Canadian and European forecast models were further South with the system for Thursday yesterday morning, and the GFS model was aimed right at us.
The snow showers accumulated snow a bit further North than expected yesterday. The model precip output only showed 1-3 inches South side of the lake.
An area of low pressure is currently approaching the CA coast.This has already spread cloud cover over the area this morning.
We picked up another 4 inches in the past 24 hours bringing the storm total to 10 inches up top!
The only change since yesterday morning is that the forecast models show the snow levels falling faster tonight. Looks like they fall to the base before Thursday morning.
