enter Stormy Conditions Bring Rain and Snow to the West

A series of heavy storms have brought rain and snow to the Northwest and Northern California. These are pre-El Nino storms from the Gulf of Alaska and have broken down the persistent high pressure mass that blocked storms last year, one of the driest on record.Bill Patzert a climatologist at Jet Propulsion Laboratory calls this recent storm “an atmospheric river (AR)” effect from the West. The storms are fast moving with a narrow band of moisture and not coming from the sub-tropical jet typical of El Nino.

Looking ahead NOAA predicts Above Average Precipitation over the next 6-10 days as well as strong PPT 8-14 days.

It is snowing now at Mammoth Mountain where they received 14″-36″ of snow over the past 3 days . Another 3-7 inches is expected for a good base of 42 inches at mid-mountain.

Conditions are very cold with single digit lows and high winds.
