“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
