This one is warm because its a Pineapple Express. As the front moves on shore its dragging a 2000 mile plume of water with it... all the way from Hawaii. You could see it in some of the radar returns.

The storm this weekend should be a bit colder with the Gulf of Alaska cold front behind it. Not super cold it seems, but colder than the first un.

So check it out, here you can see the subtropical moisture from way out in the Pacific, starting near Hawaii. Red arrows.

Round Two of the storm is still winding itself up. That is still the snow maker imo. We shall see.

Yeah, Dingus, I hacked the Unisys mail system for the whole state of Alaska
BITD. It was a hoot reading people's mail and then sending them cryptic
messages. When I told the IT peeps about their hole they wouldn't believe me.
Until I told 'em what was in their mailboxes. BwaHaHaHa!

Ron, I thought we were all aware of the rain shadow effect around here? Anyway, those CA types don't give a crap what lands on this side of the range this far north ;). Well, unless they're 80 and are still catching the gambler's special up to that nice John Ascuagua boy's place.

The snow fall above 8 to 9,000 ft. is going to be biblical. Kirkwood and Mammoth are the best bets for dumpage.

I just hope that Rottingjohnny's handlers can keep him under control until
his wax fully sets up.

60% chance on Sunday of rain, pretty high for here. Let it rain, let it rain, let rain, it works out perfectly for my injured ass. No TRs of any kind I (jealously) care about from you lot ;).
