Splitting System To Bring Quick Shot Of Snow Tonight….Then Showers In The Morning….
Saturday December 25, 2010

Just a quick update:
Winter Weather advisories from 4:00pm tonight to 4:00am Sunday.
No changes to forecast. Splitting system will weaken frontal band as it approaches the Sierra. Southerly flow aloft not conducive to orographics and will not favor heavy precipitation.
Forecast remains….. 3 to 5 inches in town tonight from a quick band of moderate snow….with snow showers in the morning. Upper elevations 5 to 8 inches….9,000feet+
Strong gusty winds over the upper elevation today
Highs in town in the 40s… lows tonight in the teens and 20s…
Some non-politically correct reading as we go into the New Year!
