April Fools..........

Going to start April more like January.

Mother nature played a little April fools on us yesterday as both snow bands headed towards us hit the mountains and slid South.  Northstar received another inch bringing the storm total to exactly 2.5 feet.  That puts the season total now at 374 inches which is 2 feet over their annual average, with more on the way.

It will be cold today with highs in the 20's on the mountain and we will have clouds at times from storms to our North. Friday it will warm into the 30's with 40's at lake level, but get really windy like it did on Monday ahead of storm #2 for Friday night. This storm will hit to our North, but will come far enough South to bring snow to Tahoe. This mornings models are showing around 3-6 inches of snow for Northstar.

Things clear out on Saturday into Sunday with temps staying cold in the 30's on the mountain. Sunday afternoon things begin to get interesting as storm #3 approaches. A majority of the models are slowing the storm which would mean the storm lasts through Monday and we end up with similar amounts to storm #1. This will be a cold storm with powdery snow once again.

Another wave moves in behind the storm and may come far enough South to continue snow showers into Tuesday. Things dry out the rest of the week but temps only rise back up into the 40's.

Another cold storm is still in the works for the weekend of the 10th. Models are also catching onto the MJO a bit and show the chance at a few storms the week of the 12th into the weekend of the 17th. BA
