Once again, we are in a fairly active storm pattern this week, although none of the systems that will come through the region will be real barn-burners. Clouds will increase Tuesday ahead of the next winter storm that should arrive Wednesday early. The Storm itself will weaken as it comes across California, but the added lift provided by the mountains should result in a few inches of snow at Lake Tahoe with as much as a foot in the prime ridgetop locations. This storm is warmer than the last several that we’ve had, and snow levels could start out just above Lake Tahoe level initially before dropping to near the valley floors later in the day. Because of the warmer nature of the system, I don’t expect to see any lower valley accumulations, but enough is expected in the mountains so that a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued up there from 4 am to 6 pm Wednesday. Isolated to scattered showers will continue Thursday and Friday before a somewhat stronger system tries to move through over the weekend.
