Next Two Storms

After another healthy shot of snow for the Sierra, we will have gradual warming starting tomorrow. The models are now downplaying the weather event on the 3rd, however both the EC and GFS are in agreement that a storm will be moving through the area. Late on the 2nd our next storm should come in. This is a big storm but does appear to have  most of the energy moving to the north:



The 6th or the 8th looks like more of a direct hit, here is the EC Forecast for the 8th, incidentally, GFS has this storm coming on the 6th of March as a start to a series of storms.


In my last post I talked about a weather pattern change for around the 12th or 13th of March. I may have jumped the gun on that one. I point at two pieces of evidence for this. First, the EC model shows a series of storms heading for Tahoe from the 6th of March through at least the 14th. Secondly, the PNA's positive trend is short lived and starts to trend much more negatively. Take a look:


My gut tells me that this stormy weather pattern will continue well into March.

Snow Report
I have to report that today the snow was excellent. The crowds were large but the mountain held out well into the afternoon. The Chutes were unbelievable. My Son and I, cut first tracks down Miller Time, which was untouched, we were first through the gate, and although it was 10 turns at best, that snow was deep and light. Of course everybody else agreed, here is a picture of the Chuter lift around noon:


Davis Creek Run
Tomorrow, I am going to attempt the run to Davis Creek off slide mountain. Davis Creek is located in the Washoe Valley. I am planning on making a full report and video about this experience and post it on the my You Tube channel. I will post the link here and a quick report tomorrow or Monday.

Stay Tuned ...
