After last winter saw the most snow in 70 years, the incoming winter season is already trying to top it with the first snowfall of the year on the first official day of the new water year.
The mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe recorded a dusting of snow Sunday morning, marking a changing of the seasons to fall. Although it was light snowfall, the mountain community celebrated the beautiful sight not seen in months.
Here are some of the snowy sights seen around Tahoe on Saturday night and Sunday morning:
We saw some #snow at the lab last night for a few minutes just before 4am PT. No accumulation was present, so it doesn't count as our official first snowfall but we're happy to see a few flakes flying!#CAwx #CAwater pic.twitter.com/E8snw9Xti9— UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab (@UCB_CSSL) September 30, 2023
Let it snow! What an awesome sight. Let’s hope we see a second consecutive snowy winter in Tahoe!
