NWS, and Howard are on board for several feet of snow out of this system. Nice!

Whenever I see big numbers in a short time that equals high elevation snow and rain lower down!

And none for SoCal.

Is this a better size cheapski?

Certainly a better looking qpf chart!

0z ecmwf has up to 68" of snowfall in the next 5 days for the central Sierra.

Much better SnS!

And whoa what is happening with the forecast precip? The last few days NWS had .60" for me and now its shot up to 1.90" for tomorrow's storm!

That 3 day was updated a few hours after SnS posted. It increased on the coastal sections.

Image


The 7 day is looking very impressive.

The question is when is the cold air coming with all this moisture?

From the weather table:

They refined my forecast again. Lowered precip from 1.90" to 1.62" and a lower freeze line.

The CNRFC reduced the qpf slightly in today's forecast. Looks like about 0.30" less than yesterday. Still spots in the 5"+ range between Mammoth and Tahoe.

Reno issued a Winter Storm Watch. Discussion:


Mono County:
Liquid totals through Thursday evening look similar and in the 2-3+" range. Snow levels will be a bit higher and in the 8,000-8,500` range. Snow totals in the high terrain also in 1-2` with localized areas up to 3`. Precipitation totals are lower
confidence in Mono County however as some model guidance keep a
longer duration of heavier precipitation. Current forecast would
be on the conservative side as a result.

My local NWS has cut me back even more now. Since I woke up its gone from 1.90" - 1.6" - 1.4". At this rate I may get an inch.
