High Pressure to Block Large Storms

After a record breaking December, the models are backing off a major weather event next week. A ridge of high pressure is the culprit. We thought that ridge would be moved out, obviously it had other ideas. 

Here is the forecast for late on Tuesday January 4th. Notice the ridge of high pressure to the south, that will close the storm door for the Tahoe area:

We are looking at 6-12 inches of snow for Mt. Rose Tuesday into Wednesday. 

We are seeing much warmer temperatures with high's in the 50's in some valley locations. By the 6th of January, I would expect to see temperature inversions in place as well.

This pattern will start around the 6th and should last for at least a week.
