RENO, Nev. — Up to another foot (30 centimeters) of snow has fallen in the mountains around Lake Tahoe where nearly 50 feet (15 meters) already has been recorded on the top of some Sierra ski resorts this winter.

A winter weather advisory remains in place until noon Thursday at Tahoe, where another 12 to 18 inches (30 to 46 cm) is possible in the highest elevations and as much as 8 inches (20 cm) below 7,000 feet (2,133 meters).

The National Weather Service says winds gusting to 45 mph (72 kph) are in the lake's forecast, with up to 100 mph (160 kph) over ridgetops.

The service says 12 inches (30 cm) of new snow fell late Tuesday and early Wednesday at the Northstar resort near Truckee, California and 9 inches (23 cm) at Mount Rose on the edge of Reno.
