We will return to much cooler air in about a week as well as an Arctic Front makes its way down and gets far enough west to effect our area.
At least the Pacific NW is getting storms now. That could bode well for the 2nd half of March.
Mt. Rose is up to 300 inches of snow for the year, which exceeds most predictions out there. Of course we predicted 330 inches for this year and that guess is starting to look eerily similar to last year. Perhaps next year we will predict 600 inches!
