The Dweebs this morning like the way the pattern is shaping up the next few weeks with good potential of beneficial rains and snow in the high country for the southern 2/3rds of the state. Medium Range forecasts and long-range outlooks show a strong for Mid April, belt of Westerlies carrying a series of closed lows through Southern and Central CA. Although in the short-term the snow level will be high…deeper systems will bring colder storms next week. The global model spreads of the 10 day QPF’s are pretty large at the moment. The European showing about 3 inches of water for the San Joaquin drainage while the GFS has a whopping 6.5 inches. Odds are it will end up somewhere in the middle by mid-month with storminess possibility persisting through the end of the 3rd week of April……Leading to an “Awesome April”….
