LaNIna Hell in California 

Update as of 1/28 shows above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation for next 10 days. Los Angeles has seasonal precipitation of less than 2 inches season to date and a red flag warning this week with high winds. San Francisco has no rain in forecast. Head to Northern tier States especially Montana for cold and snow. Mammoth did get a foot of snow late last week.

Update 1/24/18 Several inches coming over next 2 days but long term outlook dominated by blocking High Pressure in Pacific

Looks like Montana is the ticket especially Big Sky Resort.


Update 12/29/17 High Pressure in Control Until Late Next week

Looks like finally we may get a breakthrough with storms making it into California. We we will provide a detailed update by Monday.


Update 12/12/17 Dry Pattern Will Continue in California

Jet stream remains far to the North and is variable so even AR storms unlikely. Red flag warning in SoCal with Santa Ana winds brings power line ignition risk as well.
