For those of us who plan our ski or snowboarding trips based on long term forecasts, the best source I know is the Tahoe Weather Geek. The weather guru who posts his forecasts at Tahoeloco.com is a good writer and tends to be really accurate. You can also sign up for email notification, and whenever a significant weather event is imminent, he sends one out.
Today's email had this to say:
"A weak ridge of high pressure building over the region will mean a warming trend over the weekend, with high temperatures back to around normal by Sunday, perhaps a few degrees above normal.
But the change will be shortlived. Another low pressure system is expected to push past the Tahoe region Monday and Tuesday, bringing a return to cooler day time highs and, in its wake, perhaps some frigid lows. This system, however, is looking like it will stay mostly to our north, so its precipitation potential is slight.
Further out, it is beginning to look like we could begin to see a significant change in our weather by the middle of next week. The high pressure is forecast to move further west into the Pacific, opening the door for storms to reach us from the Gulf of Alaska. If all goes well, this could signal the beginning of the winter snow season."
The last piece of news is that my calendar below has been updated with new Google Appointment Slot technology. It allows users with a gmail account to click on and reserve a lesson block with me. Anyone can see the availability. You still need to call the school to confirm the lesson, but blocking it on my calendar sends me an email and lets me email or call the school to hold the date until you're able to call. If you are wanting to book an all day lesson, simply reserve both the morning and afternoon spot.
If you want to bookmark and go directly to a less busy appointment slot calendar, here's the link to that. If you click it today, you won't see any available slots and will have to scroll forward to November 18th... the first day of the season!
