After the 3 inches we measured Sunday morning we are now up to 5 feet of snow for the season at High Camp. Thanks to a cold December and low sun angle much of the snow has held well on the North facing slopes. It also allowed us to make lots of snow on top of the natural snow.
The next storm will move in across the Tahoe basin on Saturday. We should see light snowfall on the mountain during the day Saturday into Saturday evening. The latest forecast models show 2-4 inches for the mountain possible by Saturday night.
Not too many changes to the forecast today. The next system moves through Wednesday night into Thursday and then the final system Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.
The first system this week will bring in light snowfall Tuesday night. Latest forecast model runs show an inch or two for the mountain.
We finally have snow within the 5 day window. We started tracking the possibility of snow for the 7th - 10th of January about 10 days ago.
The nice weather will continue through Friday.
No changes yet to the forecast for next 11 days of sun that we're expecting. Let's fast forward again to the long-range and continue to monitor what is trending on the forecast models.
Beautiful weather conditions continue during the day with cold and some snowmaking at night. The quiet weather is expected to continue another week or two, but take a look at the latest CFS weeky precipitation anomalies for the next 4 weeks.
The mountain picked up a fresh 2 inches of snow from a cold front moving through on Thursday. We have much colder air in place behind the front with highs only in the 30's expected for Friday.
A few little changes this morning for the storm tomorrow. Some of the forecast models have slightly increased precip amounts on the South side of the lake, and others on the North side of the lake for Thursday.
