Weak storm is moving into the area tonight. Models still show it to be a pretty weak storm. Looking for 1-3 inches at lake level, with 2-4 inches above 7000 ft., and up to 6 inches on the crest by Saturday. The storm will bring a cold front that will bring temps in the 40′s today back into the 30′s for the weekend and into next week.

Another weak storm approaches the area on Tuesday. This storm looks to bring about the same amount of snow as tonight’s storm.

Beginning around Thursday of next week the pattern begins to shift to a more active pattern. Details are still a bit sketchy, but it appears that a series of storms will begin to take aim on CA the end of next week into the following week. The details on this pattern change should become more clear over the weekend. Could be another long stretch of accumulating snow. Hopefully we get at least two long periods of snow in February as opposed to the one week events in December and January. Snowpack is above average and would like to keep it that way.

Next week I should have updated NWS 3 month outlook maps posted, as well as the updated Truckee temps map and a recap on January temps and snowfall. Stay tuned……..BA
