Some heavy bands definitely setup in different spots today. Here in Squaw Valley we picked up another 6 inches under a heavy band the past 4 hours. Should continue into tonight with some areas getting nothing while others get heavy snow. Here is a nice shot from Northstar today from a reader showing the fresh snowfall and the snow guns firing in the background.
From This Morning:
Reader Reports & Resort Totals pages are updated for this morning’s reported totals. The resorts are already averaging 10% of their seasonal averages which is not a bad start as of 11/9. We are already in the 7-11 inch range at lake level which was the forecast for the storm. The resorts have seen anything from 6-18 inches as of this morning.
The models have pulled back considerably on the amount of snow today and tonight. Should see sun and scattered snow showers with maybe another 2-4 inches at lake level through Saturday morning. Maybe more in certain heavy bands that setup like the one currently across Squaw and Northstar. Along the Western crest we should see around double that.
It is also cold as temps were in the teens this morning and will be the next couple of nights, and even single digits by Saturday night. Highs will struggle to break freezing today and tomorrow.
Still watching for the big storm we could see next weekend. More later….BA
