"That super storm of snow that you have been desperately waiting for is almost here," says Nicco.

Nicco's AccuWeather forecast shows two to three feet of snow could blanket Tahoe starting on Tuesday through Thanksgiving weekend.

"It will be a sequence of storms that could have snow falling in the Sierra for 4 or 5 days in a row," says Nicco.

If your Thanksgiving travel plans include a drive to Tahoe, Nicco says you'll want to plan ahead.

"Tuesday afternoon into the evening, we are already looking at couple of inches to a half a foot of snow at Donner Summit," says Nicco. "But, by the time we get to Saturday evening, we could see up to 3 feet of snow and we could get more snow on Sunday."
