Storms Take Aim at Tahoe
As we suspected, a slight change in the Jet and we could see winter with snow in our mountains, sooner rather than later. We are beginning to see that change now and if you believe the GFS weather model, a series of storms are poised to hit our area starting around 14th of this month. The key is the high pressure ridge in the jet is now forecast to move quite a bit to the west, that should open the storm door. We are currently tracking 3 storms, each getting progressively more intense:
Notice how far west the ridge of high pressure has moved. That opens a wide storm door. What we are not seeing is a big moisture tap to the south ... not yet.
Here is our typical disclaimer; The EC weather model is not nearly as bullish. However, it does appear to be coming around. Of course as we all know, Ma Nature runs the show, not us so cross your fingers, do your snow dance, wash your car, etc.
Stay Tuned ...
