A parade of storms will hit the entire west coast through the first few days of April, with the most snow falling from Lake Tahoe northward to Oregon and Washington. There won’t be much of a break between systems, but I’ll try to break it down storm-by-storm.

Snow is ongoing as I write this on Wednesday morning, and it will continue through Thursday. Tahoe, Oregon, Washington and northward into British Columbia will all see double-digit accumulations, with the highest totals falling in Oregon.

There might be a lull in the action on Thursday night, then snow will intensify over British Columbia, Washington and Oregon on Friday and continue into Saturday. This snow will push south to Lake Tahoe by Saturday afternoon and continue heavily into early Saturday night. Snow showers will continue on Sunday for all areas, then there will be another break on Sunday night into Monday morning.

The next storm will hit on Monday night and will continue to bring snow through Tuesday night and once again all areas from British Columbia to Lake Tahoe will see accumulations of 6" + (likely much more).

It appears that additional storms are likely later next week and continuing through the first weekend in April. That’s too far away to have confidence in any of the forecast details, but rest assured that winter is far from over for the west coast!
