Lake Tahoe's Water Level Looks Good, But Not For Long

After the worst snowpack reading ever recorded on April 1 in Tahoe, a wet May has pushed the lake back up to its natural rim. That's good news, as California is in the midst of an epic four-year drought. But experts warn that the lake level will start dropping again soon, and only a small flow of water is currently running from the lake into the Truckee River at Tahoe City, California. The entire region is braced for a tough fire season.
