While we still have a lot of time to add to this historic winter’s rain and snowfall totals, we are going to get in a break. After a slight chance of an isolated early Saturday morning snow shower, our skies should start clearing off for the weekend. Temperatures will drop to below freezing levels to start the next several days (it’s been a while since that has happened.) High temperatures on Saturday will drop to the mid-40s, stay in the upper-40s on Sunday before rising back into the 50s and low 60s by mid-week.
After our five day chance to catch our breath, it looks like we will get back into an active pattern again late next week with rain and snow returning to the region.
It’s pretty difficult to try to put into perspective just how amazing this winter has been…and we still have more than a month and a half left in what we consider the “snow season.” As of this date, each of our four water basins (Tahoe, Truckee, Carson and Walker) is at record levels for this date. And it’s not out of the realm of possibility that some or all of them could finish the year that way.
