White Christmas? Still hoping but nothing yet
Saturday Dec. 17
No news is not good news when it comes to Tahoe’s winter weather.
But that’s all we’ve got for now. The forecast is dry for the next seven days, with only a couple of passing systems Monday and Wednesday to liven things up. At this point the look like nothing more than wind events, with perhaps some clouds to change the temperatures a bit. The high pressure over the Pacific is stuck in a spot that is pushing everything to the north and then into the interior US. And the storms that have made it down the coast are splitting as they approach California, with the best energy going south.
This pattern appears to have a grip on us for at least another six or seven days.
Here’s hoping it breaks in time for a white Christmas.
