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.

yes i see your pineapple connection going south- to AZ for their monsoon season, and i see the system above going north- per ususal. in bowling term the perfect split. Redding will catch it,, Tuscon will catch it and we will have some fin winds later!

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!

ill bet FIVE HUNDRED ------------------- pennies that the tahoe general area receives very little precip as most will go south and north.

Local weather here says not much until sat/sun and that will be rain. As of now NV is 100% dry.


There is ONE indicator every time we receive significant systems into our area up here--called the "Sierra Wave" ==a lenticular formation caused by the crest of the sierras and lee side effects, and we havent had one yet.

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.

Just lookin at the patterns Jeebs- there ISNT a trace of snow on NV peaks- ELY is bone dry as well. Deer are still up HIGH too. When the aneemules move- you know something significant is coming. We could USE the rain and snow, but im thinkin this wont be the "one" to do it. No wave no tickei ,, no f*ckie!

Of course i actually pray the the old catch 22 gets me- since im posting of how it WONT,, maybe,, just maybe it WILL!;-) (reverso psyche 101)

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.
