Just 96 days since the last snow!
4 Oct 11 – Unusually cold weather headed for Northern California today will bring the earliest return of winter conditions to Tahoe since 1969, according to weather forecasters.
The National Weather Service in Hanford, California earlier today forecast up to 20 inches of snow for the higher elevations.
According to the Central Sierra Snow Lab, this will be the shortest duration between snow storms since 1969. The lab – located in Norden – got its last measurable snow on July 1 – 96 days ago.
“It’s unusual for fall,” said Steve Anderson, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Monterey. “This is more typical of a winter storm.”
