Friday AM update:
Nothing new to report… Next chance for precip will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Shouldn’t be much for than a few light showers. We dry out again late next week into next weekend. Our hope for opening the storm door is the end of the month, but right now that’s not too much more than just hope. As soon as we’ve got something tangible to forecast, you’ll be the first to know…WSF
Nothing major in sight still. We’ll be mostly dry through the weekend. Next chance for precipitation will be a storm system moving in off the Pacific next Tuesday/Wednesday. This storm weakens as it moves inland, but may tap into some moisture to our south. It looks like at best we’ll see a few valley rain showers and an inch or two of high mountain snow. Ridging then looks likely to return for late next week.
The only hope right now for more significant snow is the last few days of October. A few of the GEFS and ECMWF ensembles are showing a return to troughing for the western states. This is still far too distant to forecast with any certainty, so for now we’ll just have to keep watching and hoping more of the ensembles latch on to this idea….
