GREATER LAKE TAHOE AREA, Nev./Calif. – The National Weather Service has high confidence an encroaching multi-day storm will bring very heavy snow and potentially damaging winds. They say blizzard conditions are likely and could bring this season’s heaviest snowfall.

A Winter Storm Watch begins late Wednesday night through Sunday morning. The storm is expected to produce between 2-4 feet of snow in Lake Tahoe communities. At elevations above 7,000 feet, potentially 4-8 feet are possible. 

Wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour in lower elevations and 100 at Sierra ridges could damage trees and power lines.
