Strong, Lone Storm Hits This Afternoon Through Tomorrow

Not much has changed since our last post. We have a strong storm moving in from the Pacific that will bring significant precipitation, above 7,500 feet to the Sierra and Carson Range. We are looking at about 18-36 inches by Friday night. Because this storm is moving a bit faster than expected, I think we will see the low end of that range. Precipitation will start this morning and last through tomorrow morning. A series of weak short waves will follow along with some wrap around effect.

As we move into the weekend, our ridge of high pressure will build back in and dry things out and warm things up. Here is a look at the precip estimates:



We are still expecting a very wet March at this point as well. For more information, see the last post.

Stay Tuned ...

  1. So are you expecting the warm pdo phase to continue in the coming years and decades with longer lasting and more frequent el ninos.
