The bad news is that forecasters are still up in the air about whether or not this storm will bring much-needed snow to Tahoe, where the current snowpack is currently only at 25% of the average for this time of year. OpenSnow, the weather bible for anyone who skis, says it's still too early to tell. Literally, the models are showing Tahoe snow levels will be anywhere between 6,500 and 10,000ft, which is the most useless estimation of all time. If it drops down to 6,500ft, we're totally stoked. If it stays anywhere above 8,750ft, completely bummed, and you can say bye-bye to any of the little snow that remains.
Anyway, what does this mean for everyone in San Francisco? It looks like at least a few inches of rain, which means you'd better bust out your galoshes and umbrellas, and be very prepared to pay major surge pricing for your Uber. The bad news? It'll all be over by Monday when the high-pressure system returns.
