Fine Line.......

I was in Reno for dinner last night and it was a white out blizzard with several inches on the ground. The heavy snow band set up on the North side of Truckee into Reno and stalled there all night. Places around Reno received a foot of snow overnight. The band was forecasted to shift slightly South and bring us at least 6 inches overnight, but it has barely made it South if I-80 yet.  It did come close enough to bring 2 inches to Northstar overnight. 

Currently the snow band is still stalled to our North through Reno. It is forecasted to finally drop South today and combine with the North end of a storm coming in just to our South off the Pacific.  Looking for 3-6 inches today with 4-8 above 7000 ft.  Due to the cold front moving South more slowly, it will push the storm coming in off the Pacific a bit further South tonight.

Storm still on track Wednesday to bring moderate amounts of snow in the 6-12 inch range. Stronger storm for Saturday approaches the coast. Looking a little more like it splits with the heaviest snow going into Southern CA, but we still get a decent amount. For the El Nino lovers remember how many of these storms it is causing to go South of us.

Progressive pattern should continue with storms every 2-3 days through the first week of March. BA
