Another unseasonably warm day before storm systems begin approaching

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE ” The Pacific jet stream or storm track is forecast to bring a moist flow with a series of fast-moving weather systems into the Pacific Northwest over the next several days.

Lake Tahoe and Northern California will see variable cloudiness on the southern fringe of this moist flow, with light precipitation staying mainly north of Interstate 80.

Another unseasonably mild day is expected as high temperatures reach into the lower 60s this afternoon. Increasing clouds should have little effect on daytime temperatures but likely will keep minimum temperatures in the lower to mid-30s around the basin, or about 5 to 10 degrees above the average for this date.

While travelers could encounter periods of light rain or sprinkles this weekend, snow levels should remain above 8,000 feet, or above most major Sierra passes.
