The warm and wet storm of the past 3 days has reversed Tahoe’s water decline – at least for now. Tahoe has risen over an inch with an upward trend and now stands 4.8″ below its rim (12/4/14). Still no water will flow into the Truckee River from the Lake, but it is better than a continual decline. Much of the rise is likely due to water falling directly on the surface of the lake. (See my last post regarding this phenomenon.) If wet weather continues, then we can expect a much improved water situation, but whether or not we’ll see an end to the long-term drought remains in doubt.
