Putting up such weather forecasts that portend big snow storm events on internet forums is often a jinx haha. In the case of the current storm, the raw NWS forecast discussions have pegged the storm with marginal confidence all along since if the jetstream pushed it just a bit further north, most will miss Tahoe. ...David
