A cold storm system will move into the Tahoe Sierra on Saturday, with snow fall of up to 12″ by Sunday and up to another 2 feet by Monday.

“A cold storm moves in Saturday and lasts through the weekend. We could see snow showers by early Saturday morning with snowfall intensity increasing later in the day into Sunday. … We could see 6-12+ inches on the mountains by Sunday morning, and an additional 1-2 feet by Monday morning, and 6-18 inches for lake level,” reports Bryan Allegretto, California Snow Forecaster for OpenSnow.com.

“We could see snow showers linger into Tuesday as a second wave moves through … with several more inches of snow possible on the mountains. It looks like a break is possible next Wednesday to Thursday. Then another system may approach California by the end of next week.” For the full forecast, visit opensnow.com
