Just a quick update:
CRFC for the west side has about .75 and HPC over an inch now for the crest. Looks like over a foot now for the highest elevations by Friday. Temps will get slammed by Thursday with the freezing level going from about 10,500 feet today down to 3500 by Thursday. 500mb-1000mb thickness pool still in the 520s dm.
Active pattern to continue next week with another system with some right rear jet action Sunday night for the Central Sierra. Still watching the middle of the month for system with long over water fetch……..
We could very well break the 600 inch barrier (Ski Patrol) by weeks end.
