Boils I don't know about, but deep depression and high blood pressure very possible.
I will trust in Ullr, May His/Her will be done.
It's probably asking a bit too much but Ullr, could I please have snow all about me but somehow keep my paths clear?

Ok, Ok, never mind just bring the snow, I'll deal with the paths later.

Two days ago our entire roof cornice slid and crashed to the ground. Should have seen the chunks of ice in it that I shoveled into the sun to melt. Today was very warm at around 48. But looking at the McCoy cam into the light near Parallax, it appears to be snowing.

latest 8z NAM doesnt show main precip band til around noon

Southerly upper air flow will bring warm air advection and sub trop tap. Looking at patrol gauges air is already over saturated thus looking at snow levels 8500-9K until the colder air arrives tonight. its going to be wet skiing at canyon eagle today. See thickness line on the map. Dont be fooled.

Socal: parent low for Friday may not see the Jet drop south into socal as prog by models on earlier runs thus prolly wont see #2 for precip at week's end, current run is also drier for todays storm. Euro 0z EPS run replaces that missing deluge for socal with a closed upper level low on the 20th this low has the potential to tap more tropical moisture as it drops over into the mid lats slows down before be pushed out by the next up stream syst.

P.S.
What the hell is going with patrol summary report. Last entry was for Feb 22. I base my forecast accuracy on what they report. Saturday storm saw 0.20 of liquid for Mammoth pass per noaa. With a half an inch of snow fallen on the hill by spotters.
