South Lake Tahoe weather and driving conditions this week


We are flying into San Francisco on Sunday 26th March. We planned to drive straight to Lake Tahoe and spend two days there before driving down to Yosemite for two nights (staying in Mariposa) and then heading to Sequoia for one night.

Our plan was to see the main sights of each and go on some short scenic walks. Nothing too far of the beaten track.

We are becoming slightly concerned about the weather and snow. We dont plan on doing any skiing.

Could anyone give any advice about what to expect with regards to the weather on the main routes/roads on this journey plan?

What are the main roads like on the way to South Lake and in around this area?

Many thanks,

Current road conditions are good as we haven't had any significant snow for the last week. Hwy 50, one of the 2 main roads to Tahoe in the winter has some repair work going on and is reduced to one lane in one spot. (It just slows the drive down a bit)

We're seeing a possibility of some storms this week so we really won't know until the end of the week as to what condition the roads will be in. You'll need to bring snow chains with you just to be sure.

This time of the year you can expect most anything regarding weather. You can see bright, warm sunshine days, rain, wind or snow. You will have to check weather conditions as they change. Bryan has been very good with his predictions on incoming storms for the Lake Tahoe area. You can also check current conditions with the webcameras.
