(04/26/8) Nevada Seismological Laboratory University of Nevada Reno has issued a press release of the possibility of a larger Quake of 4.7. We up here in northern Nevada have been having a swarm of quakes for almost a month now, all in the same place and most are very shallow. Its quite interesting to watch. Press release: Quake And i have a script setup for local quakes using Ken Trues excellent earthquake script, check it out here: Local Quake Brace yourselves and enjoy! Bob

(02/03/08) Holly smokes! We are getting one of the best years for snowfall we have seen in a long time. It has snowed for almost two weeks and we have 62 inches to showfor. check out ./images /5_feet_of_snow.jpg

(01/06/08) Happy New year everyone. As many of you have asked hows the snow, it is awsome! This weekend storm has been one of the biggest around here for at least 5 years. We have well over 3 feet around lake level and 3 times that up higher. Enjoy!

(09/21/07) It has been a long hot summer here in Tahoe. We had a span of about 84 days of no rain. We now have snow in the upper elevations of Lake Tahoe, and we are forecast for as much as a foot and a half for this weekend.

(06/25/07) The Angora Fire as it is called is on the other side of Lake Tahoe on the south shore area called Paradise Valley. I have some of my own pictures here if you would like to view them. our hart go out to all that have lost their properties - ./Angora Fire 2 6-24-07 013.jpg or go here fire 06-24-07

741 PM PST Mon Jan 21 2019


Winds are decreasing across valley areas this evening and so the
wind advisory for Mineral and Southern Lyon Counties has been
cancelled. Across ridgelines, northeasterly winds will remain
strong and gusty through Tuesday. Otherwise, forecast remains on
track with no additional updates planned. -Dawn


.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 219 PM PST Mon Jan 21 2019/


Brisk northerly winds will continue this evening before diminishing
tonight with the exception of strong northeasterly Sierra ridgetop
winds. Very cold temperatures are expected tonight before a modest
warming trend arrives this week as high pressure builds and valley
inversions return. Overall dry conditions and quieter weather looks
to be in store this week.


Brisk northwest winds and a few lingering showers remain behind this
morning`s cold frontal passage. Showers will diminish through the
afternoon and breezy valley winds will begin to subside this
evening. Winds across the Sierra ridgetops however will remain windy
tonight as northeasterly jet winds descend across the backside of
the departing low pressure system. Winds could again gust in the 60-
80 mph range along the Sierra ridgetops.

Winds across lower valleys will lighten as a dry slot pushes across
the region. This will allow for efficient cooling and very cold
overnight low temperatures tonight. Generally looking at low
temperatures tonight to be about 5-8 degrees below average across
most valleys, but as cold as 10-12 degrees below average for colder
valleys through Lassen County. Overall expecting low temperatures to
be drop into the teens across the western Nevada with teens and
single digits for Sierra valleys.

A quieter weather pattern will be in store through midweek with high
pressure building providing drier conditions, light winds, warming
temperatures and strengthening valley inversions. High temperatures
look to return to near 50 degrees by Wednesday. Fuentes

LONG TERM...Thursday through Monday...

Only notable change was making a slight upward trend in max temps
for next weekend, as model guidance seems to favor the ridge axis
remaining near or just inland from the CA coast. Some of the
previous model runs attempted to drop a weak upper low southward
into CA which would have brought a bit of cooling, but latest
guidance runs have largely abandoned that idea.

Dry weather is still expected to prevail into early next week, with
little or no cloud cover through Saturday, then a possible increase
in cirrus coverage for Sunday-Monday. Light winds will prevail with
typical (but nothing extreme) valley inversions most days, resulting
in limited mixing. Daytime temperatures are expected to be slightly
above average (40s to near 50 degrees) through Friday, then could
edge up into the lower-mid 50s by next weekend, with Sunday
projected to be the overall warmer day. Then a slight cooling is
possible next Monday as the ridge axis shifts a bit farther west of
the CA coast, in response to a shortwave dropping southward
across the eastern Great Basin or central Rockies. MJD


Lingering snow showers are making their way N to S in western
Nevada, mainly east of Storey county. Radar shows isolated showers
in Mono county along the Sierra. These will continue to dissipate
throughout the afternoon. VFR conditions will prevail, with
MVFR/IFR in heavy showers.

Breezy north winds today will lighten this evening into the
overnight, but northeast ridge top winds will increase. Thus,
turbulence will be possible Tuesday, especially in the morning.

High pressure will build over the California coast for the rest of
this week, with VFR and dry conditions. Freezing fog will be
possible tonight/tomorrow morning at KTRK/KTVL/KMMH. CL
