Please Just Snow........

Looking at the radar precip has already moved into Northern CA this morning. Wouldn't rule out a shower or two today with the snow levels around 7000 ft. Main cold front comes through overnight with the heavier burst of snow associated with it. Snow levels will drop below lake level so everyone should see accumulating snow. Over the past 24 hours models have trended slightly drier with the storm. Total snowfall looks to still be around 1-3 inches at lake level but I am going to back off on top of the mountain to 2-4 inches by tomorrow.

Next storm dives in from the North Friday night into Saturday. Models have been trending more towards an inside slider position for the storm. If the current track holds we wouldn't see more than a possible snow shower or two. Plenty of cold air behind both of these storms with highs in the 30's and lows in the 20's on the mountain. Should be a few nights of good snowmaking through the weekend.

Ridge should begin to build in by Sunday ahead of the next storm taking aim at the Pac NW for next Wednesday. Still hoping this storm will dig down the coast far enough to pick up lots of moisture and bring us a good storm. With the ridge in the Central Pacific a little too far North and East the pattern has been taking the storms to our North and we have been getting the tail ends. Hoping with some help of the teleconnection patterns we can get a good trough to set up over the West Coast. BA
