Sorry folks, I’ve been in Japan for the last week and out of the loop as a result. Sorry the storm didn’t materialize while I was gone. It looks like there will be a couple chances for white stuff in the near future.
The normally conservative AccuWeather forecast has snow forecasted for the week of Christmas. Not just for a single day that week, but the entire week. In fact, they see the snow starting next Thursday and continuing through December 24. To some extent, his is reinforced by the GFS model which shows a strong system on a southerly track hitting Arizona on December 23. The Flagstaff forecast from the National Weather Service has a chance of snow next Thursday.
But, the high pressure off the coast of Southern California has been quite strong and unmovable of late. I am highly skeptical. But, my T-model shows a similar possibility for Christmas Week.
