The storm spinning off the coast brough a lot of rain to coastal and central Northern CA yesterday. The storm will begin to finally push onshore today. It is going to take the turn a little further South so the heaviest snow will stay to the South of us. Today it is looking like we will see 1-2 inches of snow on the mountain overnight tonight into Saturday morning. It will snow down to lake level but it shouldn't accumulate much with the temps tomorrow above freezing. It will clear out on Sunday with chilly temps.
Next week we warm up under a big ridge that lasts all week. Next weekend we have a splitting storm approaching the coast. It doesn't look like much right now but we may get some precip and colder temps.
Looking long-range we look to be under a more zonal flow by week 2 but with the storm track staying to our North. In all the weather is going to be kind of boring for a couple of weeks it seems. It is still early in the season for big storms. Monitor the MJO over the next couple of weeks and hope for strengthening into the Western Pacific. Next best thing would be for an arctic outbreak from the North from all of the cold building in Canada so that snow making can pick up. Will be watching for that to happen as it tends to at least once in November. Stay tuned........BA
