Genoa, Nev. — The bottom of Lake Tahoe is continuing to rattle this morning with a 3.2 magnitude earthquake recorded at 5:46 a.m. I count two dozen aftershocks after Sunday morning’s 3.9.
Road controls this morning are limited to the High Sierra over Echo Summit and Carson Pass. Kingsbury and Spooner are clear and traffic appears to be flowing normally.
Highway 88 should be open just south of Minden this morning after workers installed the last segment of culvert on Sunday. Work on Centerville should continue this week and could be complete by the end of the week.
It was snowing briefly around 1 a.m. today in Genoa, leaving a thin layer on rooftops and lawns this morning. Heavenly saw a half-inch of precipitation over the weekend with a similar amount at Carson Pass. I know folks were hoping this would be a better snow producer up top, but at most it just tapped the brakes briefly on the spring melt-off.
A 44 mph wind gust was recorded in Nevada’s oldest town on Saturday morning, with 52 mph at Spooner Summit and 100 mph at the top of Mount Rose.
There might be a snow shower around lunch time and maybe some rain after that, but the odds are pretty long against. Expect cool temperatures with a high of 52 degrees and winds out of the west at 15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.
