Lake Tahoe, California sees 3 inches of snow in the forecast

May 14, 2011LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Don’t put your snow shovels away just yet. The latest weather forecast is predicting 3 inches of snow at lake level in the Tahoe basin this weekend. “It’s going to be a dramatic change from today,” said Placerville’s Bill Rose as he prepared to hike near Echo Summit. Forecasters said the snow is expected to start falling Saturday night and continue into Sunday. “Today couldn’t be better. It’s sunny and beautiful. But, big weather changes are common this time of year,” said backcountry skier Jake Maker. Higher elevations around Lake Tahoe could see 6 inches of snow by Sunday evening, according to the National Weather Service. The late winter weather will strike the Sierra just as organizers are kicking off the Amgen Tour of California. –KCRA
