Lake Tahoe Weather Update
It is finally going to get cooler and wetter starting the middle of this week. How much will Lake Tahoe get in terms of snow is a very good question and right now the Lake Tahoe weather forecast models are all over the place with some showing a decent shot for snow Thursday-Saturday with other models holding of until late in the upcoming weekend (January 24-26). All of the models, however, are beginning to agree that “change is coming” beginning Tuesday, inauguration day!
After the upcoming weekend it starts to look very interesting as South Lake Tahoe may finally see some decent winter storms move in and bring the need fresh snow to all of our winter resorts. This is not an unusual January, at least in my three decades of living and working at Lake Tahoe. Many winters have a warm and thawing January which lulls even the hardcore locals into a sense of “winter is over” malaise. But, when the wind begins to howl in February and the snow blower is out of gas reality sets in again. Winter has two more months to go! February and March are typically huge snow months so do not put your gear away yet. The best is yet to come!
