Resorts along the crest reported 5-6 inches at the summit from the snow showers Tuesday night. That made the 3 day total along the crest around 18″, not a bad start to November. Kirkwood reported 2 ft. from the Sunday storm. The rest of the Tahoe area picked up the forecasted 1-3 inches last night, 2-4 above 7000 ft.
Quieter weather for at least a week. We will have cool air and snowmaking temps at night. We’ll get a little reinforcing shot of cold air on Sunday as a storm drops down to our East through the Rockies.
The models this morning are starting to catch on to the pattern change that should happen within the next two weeks. This is due to the MJO in the Western Pacific and the negative PNA. We should see the Eastern Pacific ridge retrograde West towards the end of next week allowing storminess to enter the West coast. If the trend continues we could have some more snow in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Stay tuned……BA
