Cool, showery weather, with periods of steadier precipitation,
mountain snow, and a few thunderstorms, will continue through the
memorial day weekend. Snow could impact travel over sierra passes
through Sunday night. Showers and thunderstorms are still
expected next week, but with decreasing coverage as we move
through the week. A slow warming trend pushes highs to near normal
by the end of next week.
Low pressure currently dropping into northern california is
pushing an initial band of precipitation into the sierra and
western nevada. Snow levels are currently hovering around 7500-8000
feet around the tahoe basin with a secondary front arriving early
in the morning expected to continue to drive snow levels down to
around 6500-7000 feet today. Farther north near lassen park, snow
levels are down to around 6500 feet.
No major changes to the forecast overnight. Snow is still
expected to impact sierra passes late this morning through tonight
as another potent late season storm impacts the region. Still
expecting a few inches of snow in the 6500-7500 foot range with
5-8 inches above 7500 feet. Widespread rain is expected at lower
elevations with a slight chance of thunderstorms embedded into
stronger rain bands. Rain amounts in western nevada are expected
to generally range from 0.25" up to 0.5".
The low pressure is tracking slightly farther east and closer to
the sierra. This increases forecast confidence in snow level
projections. The other effect from this track could be to give
some areas in the central sierra including the tahoe basin a
decent break in the precipitation this afternoon as the core of
the low brushes the sierra. However, later this evening and into
the overnight hours a band of wrap around precipitation is
expected to move through the region from the northeast as the low
pressure begins to move into southern nevada.
By Monday the low pressure is forecast to move into southern utah
with mostly a slight chance of light showers for the area.
However, with the cold air remaining aloft a few thunderstorms
will remain possible. Similar conditions are expected on Tuesday
with temperatures slowly climbing each day and chances for
precipitation continuing to subside. -zach
Long term Final days of may 2019 and first week or so of june...
no big changes from yesterday. Trough will remain over california
and nevada with daily chances for showers and a few thunderstorms.
Timing individual waves dropping into the trough is rather
difficult, but appears Wednesday-Thursday are what the ensemble
systems are pointing towards as the more active days.
Temperatures will slowly increase through the week with afternoon
highs into the 70s perhaps an 80 degree day for a few western nv
The start of june should be warm, but ensembles are maintaining a
trough along the west coast in response to a flat ridge developing
in the pacific along 140w. Overall the pattern is drier, but there
will be some moisture available for a small chance of showers. After
june 5th, there is decent agreement in a more early summer pattern
with a dry southwest flow. Brong
Potent low pressure system dropping into the region, with some gusty
winds and turbulence below ridge lines this morning. Period of rain
and high elevation snow will bring MVFR ceilings reduced visibility
and mountain obscurements to the region through Monday morning. Snow
could impact trk, tvl and mmh as freezing levels fall below 7000

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
