^ That is funny, playfulcoyote!

We had a wonderful downpour for several hours yesterday morning then partly cloudy the rest of the day and evening. The mountain is in a shroud this morning, but looking like it could start raining again soon. It's supposed to rain throughout the weekend into early Monday.

The GFS (00Z) is showing a nice system for the end of this month. Who know if it will hold up, but it is nice to dream.

No weather in Huntington Beach today. Just drizzle and much cooler temps.

This little low has dropped some nice rain on the western slopes of the Sierra with a couple of locations in the 2" range. Not bad for mid October. Howard's site is showing almost an inch in town over the last 3 days.

Yesterday a dear friend drove me under cloudy skies from Mammoth to Reno in one day so I could visit Sierra Gentleman in Renown Hospital (long story, but he'll eventually heal). It began pouring rain from Minden north and almost all the way returning home in the late afternoon. I started a fire when I got home and it's still going. Nice to see the snow on the mountain via the cams this morning and it's raining steadily in town and is 40°.

Really? "420" house? That has some implications.

Yesterday it never got anywhere near as warm as NWS had forecast so I had to start a fire mid-morning which I kept on the rest of the day. When I got up this morning at 6:00 the frost on the roof was thick and it sort of looked like snow! Warming back up to 60° by the weekend, but I see there might be something coming in later next week.

The GFS was showing a system for the end of this month. It has all but vanished. Too bad. It really had my hopes up.

On edit -

From Howard at http://www.mammothweather.com

There appears this morning, to be the possibility of a decent storm, sometime between next Wednesday and Halloween.

Here are the ingredients:

Typhoon Champi was located some 500Mi due south of Tokyo this morning
A. Over the next 5 days Champi will be totally extra tropical and merging with the westerly as it moves NE
A moderate trough will move off the Asian coast this Saturday AM and constructively phase with Champi over the following 24 hours building a strong ridge down stream on a longitude between the Dateline and the Hawaiian Islands.
That amplified trof deepens a new trof down stream over the East Pac tapping cold from the GOAK.
This eastern pacific trof entrains now Hurricane OLAF as a extra tropical storm which spins up the jet in the negative tilt trof’s SE quad. This builds an upper ridge over the pacific NW while the upper trof digs into California “”About”” next Thursday the 29th. This timing is subject to the scenario over the western pacific.
Climo wise, this will bring the possibility of our All Hallows eve storm, even through it may come a day or two sooner…..

That made my morning!!!
