Dec 6-8th Atmospheric River Chase
« on: Yesterday at 01:54:20 PM »
Some years I luck out and some years I can move a inch once I get where I am going. This event is looking pretty solid with plenty QPF on tap. I stay around 6600ft while in South Lake Tahoe. Looking like 3 feet+ above 7500ft from previous experience along the Sierra Crest. Will be posting pics from lake level. Have to leave Tahoe to drive to Mammoth Sunday Morning for the PSIA Fall Rally. Going to be skiing with Glen Plake and Nick Herring ! Anyways, fun to track and watch. Things change quickly in the mountains esp when forecasting snow levels. I come back the 12th and its looking like cold in the East with a possible storm track that favors our region into the middle of end of December.

...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SUNDAY MORNING...

* WHAT...Heavy snow likely for the Sierra. Total snow
  accumulations of 1 to 3 feet above 7000 feet with locally higher
  amounts possible. Depending on the snow levels, elevations
  between 5500-6500 feet could see accumulations of a few inches
  up to 2 feet. Winds could gust as high as 55 mph.

* WHERE...Greater Lake Tahoe Area.

* WHEN...From Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.

* IMPACTS...Travel could be very difficult to impossible. The
  hazardous conditions could start as early as Friday afternoon
  and last into Sunday evening along Sierra passes. Strong winds
  could cause tree damage.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Snow levels are currently forecast to hover
  near or just above Lake Tahoe level, so impacts could vary
  dramatically within just a few hundred feet of elevation. The
  most likely time for accumulating snow at Lake Tahoe level will
  be late Saturday into Sunday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Now is the time to prepare an emergency kit for your home and
car. If traveling consider alternate plans, remember to carry
tire chains, extra food, water and clothing. Once the storm
arrives, travel may be difficult or impossible for an extended
period of time.

Jealous. This sounds like a killer adventure!
