AR event inbound

By ccrossen | October 13, 2016


We are in store for an impressive early season kick-off … a lot of precip is coming our way, most of it in the form of rain for Tahoe, and a lot of wind, via an atmospheric river event that will begin very early Friday morning and last until early next week. There are multiple waves with  this system, with the first arriving Friday, and then again Sunday into Monday, with another following closely behind. Temps are high until Sunday evening. Right now it is not very clear how much snow Tahoe and the Sierra will get, but we’re looking at anywhere from 2-4 inches of water. From NWS: Snow levels will be in the 7,500- 8,500 foot range north of I-80 and 8,500-10,000 foot range south of there Sunday, falling to around 6,000-7,500 feet by Monday morning. This means that initially the only Sierra passes affected by snow will be Tioga, Sonora, and Mt Rose. However, by Sunday night into Monday, snow is possible on all Sierra passes and anyone with travel plans should be prepared for winter conditions.
