Tahoe has broken the record for December snowfall that was set 50 years ago. How cool is that!
December snow totals at the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab reached 194 inches, blowing a 1970 record of 179 inches out of the water. Scientists at the lab said this month is now the snowiest December on record for the location and the third snowiest month overall.
The lab, located at Donner Pass, has received roughly 39 inches of snow in the past 24 hours and could break the 200-inch mark before the year end!
