Having said all of that, the changes that I have been forecasting are still en route, but ever so slow. GFS has a fairly weak system coming ashore around the 5th of January, however this system will die as it attempts to rise above the Sierra. Here is a forecast look for the 5th along with the total forecasted precip through the 10th of January.
|Total Precip through the 10th|
Again, without the cold air, we are not seeing storms of any significance.
Right now we need about 6-10 feet of snow just to open most ski areas completely. Right now I do not see that happening any time soon. Having said that, many of the long range models are predicting a chance of a decent event around the middle of January.
I will keep an eye on this and report accordingly.
