Active, Snowy Weather Pattern Starts Thursday

 We are tracking 4 storms starting late next Thursday, February 11th. Between now and then, expect above average temperatures. Then everything changes. The weather models are mostly in agreement about this next storm series so despite it still being 5+ days out, we are very confident.

Here is a look at the forecast for Thursday @ 10pm:

Notice the complete lack of our persistent high pressure ridge. Next storm comes in late Saturday, February 13th. This one has some tremendous potential:

Next storm comes in the following Monday (February 15th), about midday. Notice the moisture tail showing a true Pineapple Express event:

The next storm is forecast to come in very late on the 17th of February:

This next storm series should produce near consistent snowfall for over a week. Right now snow elevations look to be above 6,000 feet, but as we near these storms we will get a better idea. My gut tells me they will be higher with the sub-tropical moisture that all these storms are tapping into.

We do not believe that any of these storms will produce tremendous amounts of snowfall. However, by the time all 4 storms have passed through, we could be looking at an additional 4-6 feet of snow for Mt. Rose (or more):
