The climate of Lake Tahoe (California - United States of America)
Lake Tahoe is a large lake located along the border between California and Nevada. Lake Tahoe is one of the largest fresh water lakes in the United States of America. The lake is located in the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range which is very popular as a winter sports destination. Several winter sports regions can be found here. Squaw Valley was the host of the 1960 winter Olympics. During the summer this region is very suitable for mountain biking and hiking. The lake itself is very popular among water sports enthusiasts, especially divers. The region surrounding the lake was originally home to the indigenous Washoe Indian tribe. Annual precipitation figures vary from 1,400 millimeters (1.4 feet) in the regions along the western banks of this basin to 660 millimeters (2.1 feet) along the eastern banks. From November till April precipitation mainly falls in the form of snow. During spring and summer when the snow melts this may cause floods. During the summer storms over the Great Basin may cause heavy rainfall, especially on the eastern side of the lake. August is the warmest month along the lake. January is the coldest month. The highest temperature on record is 37.2 degrees Celsius (99.0 degrees Fahrenheit). The coldest temperature on record is -33.9 degrees Celsius (-29.0 degrees Fahrenheit). Subzero temperatures may occur all year round.
