We have a couple of “spring-like winter storms” lined up to come through the region over the next four days. Friday will bring valley rain and mountain snow to the region, enough for a Winter Weather Advisory in the hills around Lake Tahoe. Snow levels will start out below 6,000’, but could rise to just above the lake itself in the afternoon. Accumulations could be anywhere from a few inches at the lake to a foot on the tops. Valley rain will be greater on the west side due to pretty good shadowing along with stiff winds. High temperatures will top out near 60 degrees.
A brief break happens Saturday with variable clouds and a cooler day (mid-50s) before the next storm moves in on Sunday, once again bringing valley rain and mountain snow which will stretch into Monday. Snow levels on that storm could get close to the valley floor, but it’s not likely we will see any accumulations below 5,500’.
After another break Tuesday it looks like another storm is lined up for the mid to late part of next week.
