First storm- pretty much a piece of meandering energy, ended up being a lot wetter than any model I’ve seen. Looks like rain amounts of half to 1” were common in SOCAL with a few places in the higher slopes doing better. NAM was .5 so it outperformed the other two i guess

Yet another case of differences among the models …

Today’s 12Z EURO has the sunday trough dropping south into socal then developing into a cut-off. If this happens the snowfall will continue into midweek (28-31st). The GFS differs having the trough progress openly through socal. The stalled low with wrap around moisture may positively affect Mammoth -based on this run. This would be a good scenario (snow wise) for socal if this run of the euro verifies.

We need to start thinking of a name for this storm…!



Chit, I posted in the wrong thread again!

we need the westerlies to break through! These splitting troughs are just not forecastable...
Be alert. Keep calm. Think clearly. Act decisively.

That eerie fog is still hanging around in town this evening. It certainly was warm today even with the wet snow. Currently it's 36° at our place and NOT snowing or raining.

36 whole asterisks? Is that cold or warm? [/smartass]

Don't know if this is WX geek or Windows geek, but here goes.
The degree sign:
Hold Alt then type 0176 on the key pad then let up Alt.

Ta-DAAAAAAA!

Or just type an F.
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

If you are on a Mac you can use option+shift+8 and you will get this, 37°
or you can use option+k and get this, 40˚

They are slightly different, I have no idea why.

Anyways, I'm happy that it has warmed up a bit. Last week I was freezing my asterisk off.

Windows has 2 too. One is called Ring Above and is a bit higher, but no shortcut, and the other is degree sign w a shortcut.

I always wondered how you got the degree symbol, 2NA. :geek: I tried it, but it didn't work for me so I just typed an "F". :doh: :oops:
