7-10 Days of Storms Begin Thursday

Our pattern has completely changed because of a number of factors. Storms are now moving across the Pacific, raining on Hawaii and coming our way. The Westerlies have finally returned. What does that mean? Rain for all of California. Potentially lots of it!

Mammoth Mountain is in for a very stormy 10 day period starting Thursday. So is Tahoe. In fact, when all is said and done, Tahoe looks to be back in the bulls eye. Although some very beneficial precip should fall on all of California.

Starting very early on Thursday, the first wave moves in:


Then Friday evening the next wave moves in, notice the storm just off the coast:


Another wave should affect Northern California, including Tahoe next Monday as the stormy pattern continue until late next week.

Finally, as we expected the total liquid precip numbers have gone up for the event:


The western crest around Tahoe is looking at 7-8 inches of liquid precip. A big part of California is in the 4-5 inch range. The Carson range is looking at 3-4 inches.

Snow levels are a bit tricky on this one, however they are looking really good. Mt. Rose will pick up all snow. Most Tahoe resorts should get all snow, although snow levels could creep up to 6,500-7,000 feet.

The models have high pressure moving in late next week ... we will keep an eye on this pattern and report accordingly!

Stay Tuned ...
