What are everyone's thoughts on this storm given today's post at Tahoe Weather Discussion - No Hype Lake Tahoe Weather. If the snow levels rise to 9000-9500 ft during the heaviest precip on Sunday, will it ruin everything that fell previous to that? I mean, I'm not expecting fluffy powder days out of this storm series since it's more of a base building heavy snow, but I'm a little bummed about what could happen on Sunday. Hypothetically, let's say we get 3 ft of snow Fri-Sat at 8000 ft.... what will a few hours of heavy rain do to that snow on Sunday? Melt it all?

Please excuse the ignorance, but in my 5 years in Tahoe, this is a new one for me. I've seen storms start as rain and switch to snow plenty of times, but never one with fluctuating snow levels as crazy as this one.
