The precip spigot continues to be turned off. We have a number of very weak systems that will blow through the area in the next couple of weeks. NOAA has the PNA neutral for this period of time. We will have short energy bursts that will come through and leave 3-6 inches of snow. There should be one tomorrow (Tuesday) and another Thursday and still another on Sunday. That should do a decent job of keeping the rocks covered, but hardly the epic pow days that I was expecting. Here is what to expect on Sunday:
As you can see there is a small system just to our north that will move some precip into our area. Here is a look at the PNA forecast:
Remember, negative PNA can be a tell tale sign for a stormy pattern for our area. As you can see, NOAA has the PNA going from neutral to positive. If you want a look at the storms that have hit our area, just follow the PNA chart and look for negative periods.
A look from outer space tells the story. Very weak systems moving through our area with the really strong stuff well to our north. There are a number of factors that are contributing to this which is why most forecasters are bearish when it comes to big storms (3+ feet) in the next 2-3 weeks.
One piece of good news, it will be warmer moving foward. Should get some golf courses open in Reno in the next couple weeks.
Weather can change in a hurry ... keep your fingers crossed.
