The overnight storm has cleared out and it’s another incredible day shaping up for Lake Tahoe. We had anywhere from 2-4 inches of fresh snow and now the sky is pretty much clear.
The roads are mostly free of chain controls or will be soon.
The weather is forecast to remain sunny and mild for most of the week with possibly some snow coming in on Saturday.
Below is a current mountaintop webcam image from the south shore.
We are in the lull between storms this morning and, as you can see in the above webcam capture, it’s beautiful here.
Great day to ski, snowshoe, or find a nice sledding hill.
For those of you who don’t feel especially energetic, the road that circles the lake is open with no controls. That drive, which is about 72 miles, is an incredible scenic experience.
Sunday night through Monday morning we’re expecting more snow and rather gusty winds.
At least this one is not connected to an atmospheric river like so much of the previous weather has been. This one looks to offer snowfall measured only in inches rather than multiple feet.
There will probably be a problem with blowing snow and chain controls over all of the passes. Nothing strange about that…especially this winter.
The weather service has posted a Lake Wind Advisory and a Winter Weather Advisory for Sunday and Sunday night.
If there are any changes I’ll post an update tomorrow.
Lake Tahoe is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth. I’ve lived here since the 1980s and enjoyed every moment of it.
During all of those years I’ve walked many of the trails, visited most of the points of interest, and learned a lot about the local history.
On this blog I will share what I’ve experienced in this place of earthly paradise.
Some posts will be about personal experiences. I’ll also offer suggestions on things to see and do. Additionally, since I am a writer, I’ll occasionally slip in a tall tale for your enjoyment.
So…welcome the the blog. I hope you enjoy reading it.
