So as we know the spin of the earth causes the atmosphere to move east .
A week ago the computer models had the EVIL high pressure system off California leaving NOW and a MASSIVE multi storm dumping for a about a week all over the Sierras.
Not gonna happen.
Right now SHASTA area gonna get allot of snow and at 3000 feet ETNA CA with have a possible foot or 2 of snow by 26 December.
It will storm in the Shasta area to the coast and north for AT LEAST the next 10 days.
Then getting to Susanville – Yuba – Truckee storm coming this weekend with snow and rain to 3000 feet with the major snow at 5000-6000 feet from 24-friday 26 DEC and (todays estimate) at least 2 feet total 5000-6000 feet in Truckee SAT 27 DEC
Mammoth to Truckee similar amounts and decreasing from there.
Snow levels of 3 inches to a foot at 3000 feet FOR THE ENTIRE SIERRA NEVADA MOUNTAIN RANGE AROUND CHRISTMAS.
That’s from Tehachapi in Kern County to Oregon and beyond ! !
BUT BUT this storm has been LOSING STRENGTH (confidence) since it was first forecasted around the 10 DEC. So moisture amount predictions have been decreasing.
Don’t worry there is a abnormal low pressure system spooling up near the Sea of JAPAN headed here before year end which if it hits like predicted today will be a major dumping state wide .
Big Bear will get some too.
So I expect snow 3000feet from Kernville to Sherman road 26-27 Dec and up high at least a foot at 7000 feet 27 DEC.
