2012-13 Tahoe Resorts Powder Alert, Snow Totals & Videos Straight from Resorts

Tahoe POWder Alert & Current Conditions

Partly Cloudy, 14 F at Truckee-Tahoe, CA. Winds are Calm. The humidity is 93%. Last Updated on Feb 20 2013, 7:50 am PST.

“A fast-moving cold front that dropped out of the Gulf of Alaska Tuesday has moved south of the Tahoe Basin this morning, leaving cold temperatures and scattered snow showers in its wake. The storm dropped about 6 to 10 inches of snow on Tahoe’s peaks as it swept through the region. Low temperatures were in the single digits this morning.

The weather pattern will remain unsettled for the next several days, with cloudy skies likely off and on through Friday before another chance of accumulating snow on Saturday.” – weather-geek

Question: Will the 2012-13 season be an El Niño or La Nina winter season?

Answer: The probability of an El Niño event is high according to “computer models developed by long-range weather forecasters project a wet winter across most of Northern California with above-average snowfall for Tahoe, the high Sierra and the Rocky Mountains.” – Tom Stienstra of Slope Dope. In addition, the World Meteorological Organization supports this finding with their detailed analysis.
