Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Lake Tahoe, CA (KTVL)

Finally California is getting some much-needed precipitation. Thursday looks like a wild day in Lake Tahoe, with strong winds and heavy snowfall. Here's something from the Reno forecast discussion: "We have said this already, but it is worth repeating: heavy snowfall rates in the Sierra will combine with strong winds to create periods of dangerous whiteout conditions in the Sierra." Let's predict Thursday's high temperature for Lake Tahoe. All of the MOS forecasts have a high of about 40 F, but the NWS says only 35.
