Lots of wind today but so far, not nearly as much as we had last Saturday…..  The main upper jet comes in tonight just to the north of us. So winds should get stronger tonight and really Howell by Midnight!.  Again the Main theme here is that the upper jet is still to our north with its axis to our north as well.  Snowfall amounts drop off quickly once south of Tioga Pass and even further by the time you get south of a latitude east of Huntington Lake. The latest QPF brings 1 to 4 inches of wet snow in town by the end of the day Wednesday and between 5 and 10 inches over the crest.  Let hope Mammoth Mt can squeeze a foot out of it…..That’s pushing it but Its possible……

The Trof over the Eastern Pacific will slowly progress eastward this week and be out of here altogether by this weekend.  However, there are a couple of waves in the flow. One Friday mid morning and the other on Sunday.  These will keep our airmass mixed out.  I am expecting partly cloudy weather and breezy at times this weekend into early next week.  As mentioned in my last discussion, I believe that the MJO, now over the Indian Ocean will modulate the westerlies leading to a good storm between Thanksgiving and months end. Both ECMWF and GFS show a fairly good storm for the Northern and Central Sierra the end of the month.  In the meantime, high temps will cool to the upper 30s by Saturday and lows will be in the single digits and teens…..Great snowmaking weather!!
