I am seeing adequate spillover as this storm starts south, moves north and slams the inland high pressure. This will cause it to do an about face and track south right through our area. I am looking at 18-36 inches of snow for the Carson Range by Monday morning. We could see more if this thing stalls.
Here is a look at the Pacific forecast for late next Monday:
As you can see, things have not died down and there are some very powerful storms. I believe the next big storm should come in around a week from today. If you look at that storm in the middle; that is almost a cyclone insofar as wind speeds are concerned. I would not want to be out on a boat of any size under that storm. That storm is headed our way and will bring in the next wave.
Finally, here is the precip outlook for the next 10 days:
Again, more significant precip for northern California while Southern California is again being left out. The Carson Range is in the 3-4 inch area, but I believe we could see as much as double that in the next 10 days. The models have been under-predicting all year.
Stay Tuned ...
