Lake Tahoe weather: Snowday for Lake Tahoe Unified School District
LTUSD cited a blizzard as the cause for Monday’s closure. Meanwhile buses for Douglas County School District schools at the lake are running 90 minutes later than regular. Those buses will stop only at main bus stops (see factbox).
People around Lake Tahoe are once again digging out of a heaping amount of new snow after periods of heavy snowfall and whiteout conditions Sunday, and another 1 to 3 inches of accumulation are possible Monday, according to the Nation Weather Service (NWS) in Reno.
Winds may range from 15 to 25 mph with gusts as strong as 40 mph. Ridge wind gusts could be as strong as 90 mph. That could lead to whiteout conditions, particularly on mountain passes.
“Snow showers will increase by daybreak and continue through mid-morning,” according to NWS. “Areas of blowing snow are also expected.”
Sierra-at-Tahoe reported 25 inches of new snow over 24 hours just before 6 a.m. Monday.
