This Week's Storms

Ensemble forecasts are suggesting that precipitation over the next two weeks could be quite substantial, with several inches possible in some coastal spots and 6 inches of liquid equivalent in the favored Sierra Nevada watersheds. These are not exceptional totals, but they are definitely above average for a two week period this late in the season. Importantly, there will be quite a bit of cold air associated with this precipitation, and so snow levels will once again be low enough for most of this water to fall in frozen form above about 4000 feet (and locally lower). That’s great news from a snowpack perspective, as it appears that this storm sequence could cumulatively several new feet of snow in some places (perhaps nearly as much as the last event at the highest elevations). … ”  Read full post from the California Weather Blog here:  ‘March mitigation’ commences as unusually cold late-season storm sequence arrives
