Tahoe Weather Watch: Feb. 14 “Happy Valentine’s Day… snow on the way?”

Happy Valentine’s Day! It looks like the Northern Sierra may get their present a week late this year. Snow would have been nice this week but that’s just asking too much of Mother Nature this time around. The pattern change to wetter, more winter-like weather is well on the way. The weather models are now in consensus that, by the middle of next week, the Northern Sierra will finally be transitioning to an extended wet and cold period that could last well into March. The first storm will skirt to our north on Sunday bringing only wind and some clouds and lowering our temperatures down from the springlike highs that have been beating up our snow. Next week’s Tuesday-Thursday storm looks to be the one to open the storm door and put an end to this  extended dry period. At this time, I don’t have a ton of confidence in next week’s storms bringing in a lot of moisture so I’m holding off on any storm expectations as this pattern change is still in the works. Expect snow showers as low 3,000 feet but not much accumulation is expected even at resort levels. For now enjoy the rest of your week and have an awesome time on The Lake.

No weather related travel restrictions are expected as this holiday weekend looks to remain clear and sunny. Have a safe drive.
