thunder and el nino

By ccrossen | July 23, 2014

Some excellent reading over at The California Weather Blog, Weather West as we dry out from the last couple weeks of unusual rain and thunderstorms that have hit the Sierra.


The primary reason for all of this active weather throughout the West in recent days is the seasonal reversal of large-scale wind patterns associated with the North American Monsoon. This reversal occurs every summer, and is typically associated with occasional convective activity (often in the form of thunderstorms) over mountain and interior regions of the Southwest. Occasionally, this pattern can expand northward and westward to include California in the region of deep southeasterly flow around the characteristic mid-atmospheric high pressure area centered near the Four Corners region. Due to the stabilizing influence of the cool Pacific Ocean near the coast of California, convective activity associated with the monsoon is typically confined to mountain and desert regions, and thus tends to stay away from California’s major population centers. This gives rise to the perception that it never rains in California during the summer months (which is, indeed, a rather accurate characterization if one lives in the coastal metro regions or in the Central Valley).



As for El Nino, we are still on track for some type of event, with NOAA reporting they expect an 80% chance of one occurring this coming winter. However, with relatively modest El Nino’s, the affect really is uncertain, as only the truly most powerful ones create huge winter/precip for the Sierra.


From the California Weather Blog, Weather West, “The quick summary version: connections between California precipitation and El Niño are rather tenuous, except for very strong El Nino events, which are associated with increased cool-season precipitation. This is especially true for inland regions of Northern California, where the majority of California’s reservoirs and “snowpack stored water” capacity resides. While there were some early indications during spring 2013 that the upcoming likely El Niño event could be a very strong event, a top-tier event now appears less likely.”

excellent weekend of winter in tahoe. a lot of snow Fri-Sat, with 24+” up along the Crest. Skied very very well, but has changed quickly with no real wind on Saturday, warm temps, and then cold winter temps on Sunday. There are pockets out there that will ski great, just have to poke around. And now we wait for the corn cycle to take hold and we’re into the final month or two of spring skiing. We have warm daytime temps all week, though nighttime temps struggle to really get down there into a hard freeze. Keep an eye on Shasta, Lassen, East Side etc. as they are primed to go…

bonus

By ccrossen | April 25, 2014

Coming in strong! System and front came in colder than expected. 12+” up high along the Crest by noon today, and it is still dumping, another 4-6 this afternoon and 2-4 tonight. Skiing is great, fairly cold, not too wind affected… very nice skiing … temps remain cold through the weekend.

winter’s return

By ccrossen | March 24, 2014

well, that was a nice spell, warm temps, corn, good times. now winter returns, with the potential for a good deal of snow over the next week (2-4 feet over the next week), depending on how the jet sets up. There’s a l;to of moisture incoming, and the timing and placement of the jet will dictate a decent event or a small event. We shall see. First wave comes in Tuesday-Wds, showers into Thursday. Will start warm, and then get cold, snow below lake level by Wds afternoon, mostly snow up high (7,000′) the entire time. Kidnof the story of the year, lots of snow up high… not much down low. We shall see. Next system is targeting the weekend, though it’s not entirely clear what will actually happen - Fri-Sun or Sun-Monday. In any event, get ready for some pow and much colder temps.
