Lake Tahoe weather: I-80 shut down again, schools closed as storm wraps; 678 inches of snow now for season
TRUCKEE, Calif. — School is closed Monday across the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District and the Lake Tahoe Unified School District — and Incline Village schools are on a two-hour delay — as a winter storm warning remains in effect for the greater Tahoe-Truckee region until 10 a.m.
Interstate 80 between Applegate and the Nevada state line, meanwhile, remained closed last of 7:30 a.m. Monday due to whiteout conditions on the freeway.
The California Highway Patrol made the cal to re-close the freeway at about 5:30 a.m. to all traffic. I-80 was closed on and off throughout the weekend, and much of Sunday, due to the storm that began pounding the region with more snow starting Saturday afternoon.
