In the range of 5" of rain in Sacramento by Sunday... that's like FIVE FEET of snow on the crest of the Sierra.

I'm just sayin... old man winter is riding the Alaskan express with a tropical depression up his ass. Get ready for some good old fashioned California dumpology.

Don't get caught unawares!

DMT, sorry but I don't see any significant storm pattern in your posted image. Looks pretty scattered and unorganized.

Here you go Kalimon - the storm track. The fresh maker is the innocuous clouds behind the trough under the arrowhead of the leftern most arrow. See those clouds? That signals an Alaskan storm fueled by tropical moisture. I

This one's a snow maker.... maybe not. Still pretty warm. May fall as rain - at least there's no snow pack to melt.

Yeah, I'm getting the same forecast V. is getting: rain up here. Since I'm injured, I've approved precipitation. Since I can't shovel snow right now, I have only approved rain. Sorry, guys.

Flood watch and nothing but a $hit ton of rain around here.
Kwood will officially have a very solid base after this but what falls ain't gonna be blower. The lower resorts are literally going to get hosed.

Good timing for me since next week is finals.

Check out the forecast for Shasta.


Tonight Snow after 4am.
Total nighttime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Wednesday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 16 to 22 inches possible.

Wednesday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible.

Thursday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 29 to 35 inches possible.

Thursday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 37 to 43 inches possible.

Friday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 23 to 29 inches possible.

Friday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches possible.

Saturday Snow.
Saturday Night Snow.
Sunday Snow.
Sunday Night Snow showers likely.//

I can't even add up all that snow.
I've got some time off after December 7th, am thinking of a Lassen/Shasta skiesta. Anyone else want to come?
