Stormy Pattern to Continue, For the Next 15 Days ... At Least

We oftentimes suggest remedies to combat dry winter spells. For example, we have put out a call for everybody to wash their cars, surely that will bring in stormy weather. I toyed with the idea of turning on my irrigation system a few weeks back, that would change the pattern.

I think we have finally found the be all, end all, remedy; Close All the Ski Areas.

Since the highly questionable decision was made by the lawyers (See Unofficial Rose) to close down all the ski areas because of our litigious happy society, we have done an about face in the weather pattern that is rarely seen, even here. Coincidence? Probably, but let's keep this in mind if we need a proven drought buster.

We are tracking three more storms that are going to bring more snow and rain to the Sierra and state of California. These late season rains will oftentimes lead to a really nasty fire season, not to compound the many problems facing the state of California right now.

The first storm is just off the coast right now. It will move inland and effect Southern Cal and then move up to our area. Here is a look at the forecast for Sunday afternoon:

  This storm will effect our area for 2-3 days. We should get a slight break in the middle of next week, then the bigger storms move in: Here is a look at the forecast for 1 week from today:

We can expect to pick up another 6-8 of liquid precip in the next 10 days.

Gotta go, earn your turns and enjoy these beautiful winter conditions. Of course check out Unofficial Rose and the Sierra Avalanche center prior to heading out. Both are linked on this site.
