I am going to publish vital stats for the next 4 storms. These forecasts include the Sierra and Carson Range

Sunday/Monday/Tuesday
Start - Sunday Morning
Peak: Very Early Monday Morning
Best Skiing/Riding: Monday
Amount: 2-4 feet - South getting more than north
Briefly: Storm moves in late Saturday night, initially hitting north of Tahoe. Picks up steam on Sunday and moves south early Monday morning.

Briefly: Weakest storm in the bunch, comes straight from the west. Gets pushed out by bigger storm on Friday.

Thursday/Friday/Saturday 3/24-3/26

Peak: Late Sunday Night
Best Skiing/Riding: Monday

All forecasts are made by the EC model. Obviously these types of predictions become less reliable the further out they are. During next week I will fine tune the timing on all these storms. The  models are surprisingly in synch on this pattern. Incidentally, on the heels of the last storm, EC has another strong storm. This may not end any time soon.

Stay Tuned ...
