This one looks more promising than the last one.

You jinxed it to turn more east than south.

If you're hoping for one last pow sess...well, not much dynamics to work with.

Few hrs old, EC control ensemble run now back to orig thinking and I think this is where it'll be- model showing few hrs late and sliding east...QPF cut down to less than a 1/4.

Some showers and snow showers to the north today. No change in the forecast maybe 3 or 4 inches at most unless we get a surprise.

Modest bump in the 72 hour qpf. Even SoCal gets into the action.

141" today. So 17" melted in one week!

I should have paid attention to the top. 290" on the snow report today.

So there's 10 weeks of snow left! (at least, based on this week melt rate). I think the runs that get groomed and salted will lose less. I think Stump could go to the 4th of July with some snow farming.

141 < 170

Ok kind of but not kidding. Although Sesame site always melts out quicker than the runs because its not being salted and manipulated by the groomers.

Yeah I just averaged it. Could be a lot less as we move into summer obviously.

But if it keeps snowing then who knows when it'll finally melt out.

Official forecast is down to just a few inches. Maybe 4 if we get lucky. Staying chilly for a few days though.

It is really W-I-N-D-Y here behind the storm. Or is that in front of the storm?
