tahoe. >> take advantage of this dry weekend and a lot of skiers and snow board and as. >> really going to enjoy the feet of snow that you've got things to this week's atmospheric river and also the most recent storm that brought us an additional foot of fresh powder by the middle of this week. but we are tracking, though, dry conditions and also perfect travel conditions as well. for those of you heading out early in time for your christmas destination. never too early to celebrate. christmas right in your sierra snow pack benefiting from that winter wonderland we're seeing now. it's 98% of average in the snow totals in central sierra and southern sierra more than 100% of average really benefiting the snow packs. let's keep it coming radar for though, tracking dry conditions not just for the bay area but also for the sierra as well. but we are going to notice additional storms. most of this upcoming week starting monday night and
lasting all of your christmas week holiday. we're going to see storm after storm bringing more feet of fresh powder to the sierra snow levels going to dip below 3,000 feet as early as monday night, believe it or not, we could see 2 to 3 feet of mountain snow throughout the highest peaks of the sierra and also one to 3 inches of valley rain. in addition to gusty winds as well. so that's why i'm really urging you to take advantage of the dry weather this weekend and monday afternoon as well. that's going to be the latest because it's going to be pretty hazardous. dangerous driving conditions after monday night from now. until then, though, south lake tahoe and truckee we're tracking moment that mostly sunny skies, but we could see some thin high clouds overhead temperatures are trucking in south lake tahoe in the low 40's and we're going to remain in the low 40's by sunday. even with that extra sunshine. then monday going to see that increase in that storm cloud cover. but temperatures holding steady in the low 40's
and then more snow showers arriving for this monday nights ahead out and enjoy the fresh patter. back to you. ken and pam mabry said thank you. of course, nobody could be happier about all that snowfall that the skiers and snowboarders are flocking to the mountain this weekend. and here to talk about the conditions that the people can expect up there. we bring in our good friend. >> always the amiable. kevin coop cooper and kevin coop. i guess the big word that you would be using right now is stoked. oh, absolutely. i mean, this has been a for us. we had a really dry november. we had to advertise are back in october. that such a dry november behind me at lake level. we have over 3 feet at lake level with this next system coming in. it's going to set the whole for some great skiing and riding. and i got to tell you, is really cold out here this morning to 6 degrees. so the snow is still mid when or shape. so for this weekend. it's game on. >> so much snow in the forecast in the lead-up to
christmas. what is your advice to travelers because it looks like it may be snowing every day in the lead up. >> just question. panic just prepare. make sure you have that road kit. what do you have your flares. you have your cell phone charged food in the car. you have a sleeping bag. you have extra water. you're ready to go. you have your chains into if you're just prepared to come up. just slow it down a little bit. we're already notice saying, you know, caltrans and chp people are so eager to get up here just this weekend. we're seeing a lot of action on i 80 highway 50 state route 88. so just slow down. it's the gang of the cities that we want to p%ay it safe and play all season. yeah. talk about the expectations because we have that october early storms. lot of snowfall, lot of rain down here and people thought this is going to be a fantastic thanksgiving holiday. they're going to open up early. >> none of that happened because there was no more rain or snow for weeks. but now we're back into it. so how are the resource responding.
>> they're doing a great job. now they are a little challenge right now. that's what with the higher side of it. also a lot of snow fell in a very short time. here's your example i went to bed at 9 o'clock tonight before we 3 feet of snow at lake level between 09:04am. so there was a lot of snow for them to start working with compacted. now, the did a great job most resource now operating anywhere between 3545% with this next round coming in right before christmas will probably see up to a 100% opening thank kirk would not resort. as an example. they've opened up chair 6 and this weekend chair 10 will open up which gives it a majority of their 2300 acres. it will take a little bit of time for the resorts to get all the way open we're looking for to us this week. it lee scare compassion is the name. then the mount operations teams can getaout and pack it down with their their mountain ops teams and the groomers also subsidize it with snowmaking. so it's going to be a good time. your expectations to be. you're going to midwinter
shapes know right out of the box. maybe not all that rain, but a majority of it. so just let them out resort teams. get everything up and operating. you're going to have a great good time. and this this next system if its students like i just heard it is going to be game on a pair. >> so i don't want to put be a debbie downer on this. but at what point is that are there concerns about avalanche potentials. >> and that's a great question. that's not a debbie downer that just definitely that's good sense. that great question because right now it's considerable and it would be moderate tomorrow. we have a lot of snow in a short period of time. back to the question earlier about that snow back in october. we had a right where we had about 45 interest to 54 inches of snow in but a big dry november that puts a bad sheer layer in place and then you have a law of snow falling on top of that light dry 10 to 15 to one depending on the elevation. so there's the sheer layer out
that we've got to pay attention to. but the good newe as the next system coming in will be light and dry and hopefully it all packed down. but you can always go to the sierra avalanche center to get the update remember know before you go, big impact. road shovel. let somebody know you're in addressing plan before you go into the back country. if you don't know about the back country. take a class reporting about the basement and a few others in sanford just to have great clinics for you to understand it. but let's pay attention. my friends. too many passed over the last several years because they want to go enjoy it. but they didn't know before they went, you know, very practical really solid advice cook, thanks a lot for that enjoy the snow. have a good time and very christmas. >> thanks a happy holidays all same to you. >> that's kevin coop cooper. all right. still ahead, tonight, a developing story out of pittsburgh. police investigating the death of a woman possibly from carbon monoxide exposure for following up with a and as

decorations on the tree marysol castro explains with some hour just a calling christmas tree syndrome. >> o christmas tree o christmas tree. are you triggering my allergies experts say often it's not the tree itself. but what's on it that can send you into a sneezing frenzy so even mold spores that are on there. >> dust mites that are on there or even other pollens that are kind of trapped on the trees. >> and then bringing that into your home, you know, causes the trouble. maya works an allergy and asthma clinic and treats patients for christmas tree related allergies every year. >> she says the problem is not exclusive to real trees. your artificial tree can cause just as many problems. >> if a country that you store in the attic all year long is sitting in an area that is probably a little moldy, probably a little dusty. and so that brings in all of that, right to the center of your where you're breathing that can have serious consequences.
>> researchers at suny found 70% of mold found on trees can lead to complications from sinus congestion to severe asthma attacks. but your allergies don't have to be the grinch that steals all your christmas, joy. there are a few things you can do to help. >> if you're buying a real tree having at the christmas tree farm actually kind of shake it off a little bit. if possible washing it off, you can do the same with their artificial trees, wreaths and ornaments. that would be really helpful for someo%e that's really they know that they're really dust mite allergic. all of this helping you enjoy the trees without a sneeze at. >> that was marysol castro reporting. scented candles diffusers and wax. well, they can also trigger your allergies. but, you know, usually allergy seasons us in the spring of this. i've never heard of this before. this is a newbie. i'm been running across people have allergies right now, which is weird. whatever coming up what struck
