Several Glancing Blows Before a Real Storm Pushes In

 We are in a stormy pattern with several storms headed our way. These are not like the last storm in that they do not carry the precipitation potential.

We are looking at around 6 inches of snow for Mt. Rose between now and the 8th of November.

Then a potentially larger storm comes in that could deliver a foot of snow or more.

Our ridge of high pressure will need to flatten a bit prior to any storms making into Tahoe. So, for the next week the storms will just deliver us a glancing blow and for the most part, push north. That is not at all uncommon for this time of year. Our best chance of precip this week is very early Thursday (11/4) morning:

The models have the leeward valleys being completed shadowed from precip, but the Carson Range could see a few inches, six at the most.

Then around the 7th of November, our ridge flattens out which will allow storms to dip further south. How much is still up in the air:

We expect several waves of precip to hit the Carson Range and possibly bring 1-2 feet of much needed snow. Over the course of the next 10 days here is what we expect in the way or precip:

We are thinking all snow for Mt. Rose with elevations around 7,500 - 8,000 feet.
