Another Pow Saturday!.....

As stated in the update last night the cold front didn't have much success in clearing the crest. The cut-off low formed over Sacramento and formed a heavy band to the Northeast near Reno. Eventually the band shifted West in the evening and then slid South down the Sierra. Fell a little short of forecast on the North end of the Lake. Northstar is reporting 5 inches of snow. Should be great conditions on top of all the snowmaking this week.

Cold weather and great snowmaking conditions the rest of the weekend. It will stay dry but cool most of next week with highs in the low 40's on the mountains and upper 40's by the lake. Lows at night in the 20's. That should keep the snowguns going and limit melting.

Another cut-off may come down the coast next Friday bringing a chance of snow and some more cold air for next weekend. Still watching next weekend as a possible turning point where the jetstream cuts under the high pressure building in over the Pacific Northwest and hammers CA. Also don't think the models are quite picking up on the typhoon that will be heading across the Pacific this week. The last typhoon that did that brought that big storm back in October. Last night's GFS model did hint again at substantial precip next week. Stay tuned.........BA
