We have another on-again, off-again storm forecasted for Friday-Saturday. Personally, I’m not seeing it happen. The High pressure system off the California Coast is making forecasts quite difficult. The models seem to struggle with it. There is the ability for lows to wrap around it from the north and moisture to be drawn up from the southwest, or not. It comes down to the intersection point of these two things. Last weekend, the line of intersection was from Flagstaff to the southwest.
However, the persistent California Coastal High looks to be breaking down to some extent. A change appears to be in the offing for next week or later. While the Friday-Saturday system may not produce precip, it may help with opening the storm door once again.
Last Storm Summary
The last storm(s) seemed to drop about 6+ inches in my backyard. The weather service reports 5.5 inches of snowfall for the month, which is above the “normal'” 3.6 inches. Conversely, they report the precipation(water) amount as 0.27″, which is under the 0.36″ “normal. This means the snow was very light and fluffy.
