A powerful storm slamming the coasts of California, Washington, and Oregon is causing flooding rain, heavy snow, and damaging wind gusts.
An unlikely place for surfers, the strong wind gusts are creating some rough waters on Lake Tahoe.
Let’s be clear — Lake Tahoe is an extremely cold lake.
Despite a current water temperature of 50 degrees, surfers are taking full advantage of this storm.
If you’re familiar with the lake, you know what its waves usually look like when they calmly ripple against the beach. The wind from Thursday’s storm brought massive waves that resembled those of Santa Cruz.
