Aloha gang,
Drinking Pinot here @ lax flight to sfo delayed. Was pretty low clouds when we landed but that could have been the merlot kicking in after 4:53 across the pond.

I only brought shorts, slippers, and aloha shirts so I hope it's sunny and warm in San Fran

Aloha,
Will

If you get upset because you put even a shred of faith in any forecast longer than 48 hours that's your own fault. Long range forecasts are a bit of a joke, imho.

BA at TWD is great. People just get pissed when the weather doesn't cooperate and the messenger makes a convenient scapegoat.
He's very open about not being a professional weatherman. His blog was a hobby that's grown due to its popularity. Feel free to watch the Reno TV weather man if you prefer.

It's blowing like an MFer here.

Reno

With the potential for localized flooding, starting today, sandbags and sand will be available for the public at three locations: Idlewild Park (located at 1900 Idlewild Drive); First Street at Riverside Drive; and the parking lot of the Governorís Bowl Park (located at the end of Line Drive which is off of East Fourth Street). The sites and materials will be available between 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., including Saturday and Sunday. Residents will need to bring a shovel to fill the sandbags. Should the potential for flooding and the need for sandbags increase, additional sandbag sites will be announced.

56 mph max gust this morning, third straight day with 50+ winds, with 1.37" of rain in Verdi today. 2.42" storm total so far, and still raining at a good clip.. this storm alone is probably going to be a substantial part of the annual precipitation here.

Whatever. When looking at forecasts, the last folks I look to are the local TV weather. NOAA looking two or three days out and looking at the GFS long-range fantasy models, and checking these guys (one of which is a Taco denizen) out:

You could even invest in a Mountain Meteorology course at LTCC taught by one of the lead forecasters of Powdiction.

There is some choice commentary coming out of right field here!

Damn .... The Chief is the weather Guru of Eastsidestan - surely he has some contrarian separate reality he could share with the less enlightened?
