Monday February 28, 2011

HPC and CRFC have increased their QPF for the Wednesday system with about 1.3 inches for the Yosemite area. So…storm totals now up to a foot possible over the upper elevations by Wednesday night.. Additional amounts up to .60 is possible for Thursday so another 3 to 6 inches?
In that the subtropical jet will be the main player this week, snow levels will be higher. (6000 to 7000) and the snow to H20 ratios lower as a result.
It looks pretty windy Wednesday….with lower snow levels Thursday again. Next upstream system the end of the week.
