Record highs melting as cold front moves into Lake Tahoe
South Lake Tahoe was 61 degrees on Feb. 24. This broke the previous record of 59 set in 1995.
But things have already changed with a cold front having started to blow in last night. Today’s high in South Lake Tahoe is expected to be 45, then 37 on Sunday and 28 on Monday.
February has been super dry throughout California and Nevada. It’s so bad that water officials have scaled back allocations to farmers and others who rely on reservoir storage from the North State.
Exactly how bad things are will be calculated Feb. 28 at the next snow survey.
