Two Storms Headed Our Way

The weather pattern remains active, despite the very disappointing performance of this last storm. We are tracking two storms; one for late Friday and another for late Sunday.

Here is the forecast for the Friday storm, the weaker of the two:


Here is the forecast for the Sunday night storm:


Both of these system are fast moving so we will not see any epic dumps out of this. However, in a best case scenario Mt. Rose could pick up a couple of feet by this time next week with the bulk of the snow coming late next weekend.

Valley Inversions
The leeward valley's will continue this awful inversion which is trapping the fog and moisture until about Wednesday. A very weak and dry system should cause significant mixing and kick that crap out of here which should allow the sun to finally shine through and warm us into the upper 40's or low 50's, especially Friday and over the weekend as these storms approach. The next two systems will remove any remnants of the fog and hopefully we will be in the clear in a few days.

Here is the 10-day precip forecast:


This is calling for nearly 3 inches of liquid for Mt. Rose, which would really help in the coverage. Remember, it has been sunny and warm up there for the past week or so as they are above the clouds.

We expect that all precip for the Sierra will be snow above 5,500 feet which will be great for all Tahoe ski resorts. The western resorts will see more precip as the trajectory of these storms could push the bulk of the moisture further south and west, we shall see.

Stay Tuned ...
