Lake Tahoe weather: Chance of snow on Christmas Eve
The coming weekend will be sandwiched between chances of snow.
There is a 40 percent chance of precipitation in Incline Village and 50 percent chance in South Lake Tahoe Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Reno.
With high temperatures reaching 44 degrees in Incline and 46 in South Lake Tahoe, little to no snow accumulation is expected at lake level.
Saturday is expected to be partly sunny with highs in the mid 40s.
A slight chance of precipitation will return Sunday, mostly after 11 a.m. Little to no snow accumulation is likely Sunday.
A chance of snow will linger in the area to start the week, potentially setting the stage for a white Christmas at Lake Tahoe.
“After a dry Saturday, weak disturbances will bring light showers at times Saturday night through early Monday,” states the weather service. “Travel impacts are more likely for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when a stronger storm system brings increasing chances for rain and snow.”
A storm on Christmas Eve could bring 6-15 inches of snow at higher elevations and 2-6 inches in the valley locations.
