A very interesting and complex trend on the forecast models over the past 24 hours. The Canadian and European forecast models were further South with the system for Thursday yesterday morning, and the GFS model was aimed right at us.
The snow showers accumulated snow a bit further North than expected yesterday. The model precip output only showed 1-3 inches South side of the lake.
An area of low pressure is currently approaching the CA coast.This has already spread cloud cover over the area this morning.
We picked up another 4 inches in the past 24 hours bringing the storm total to 10 inches up top!
The only change since yesterday morning is that the forecast models show the snow levels falling faster tonight. Looks like they fall to the base before Thursday morning.
The forecast models disagree slightly with timing of the main push of heavy precip and how long it lasts, but they are in decent agreement on total precip.
As a large area of low pressure swirls towards the Pacific NW coast the next few days we could see some clouds, but the low will draw up warm air ahead of it.
We will see dry conditions through Monday before a system will try to break down the ridge on Tuesday.
Sunny skies will continue for the next week. A system will push into the West Coast to our North next Tuesday Wednesday. The next system will push into the coast by the end of next week.
This week will start with mild temps with highs in the 50's. A weak system will drop down to our East later in the week which should bring in slightly cooler air. Highs by the end of the week may only be in the 40's.
