Only 4 more days until we see a train of storms roll in by Wednesday. The forecast models have sped up the onset of the Wednesday system slightly with light precip possible by Wednesday morning. Wednesday night is when the heaviest precip pushes in. Looking at the latest liquid forecasts we could see 4-8 inches at the base, and 8-12 inches up top.
The snow tapers off Thursday morning and it looks like we will have about a 24 hour break before the next stronger and colder storm moves in Friday. Some forecast models have the snow starting in the morning and some in the afternoon. This storm will last 36-48 hours not tapering off until Sunday morning. This storm will be colder and wetter than the first. Looking at this morning's model runs they are in fair agreement in we could see 1-2 feet of snow at the base, and 2-3 feet up top.
The third system is right on the heels of the 2nd and could bring in more snow by Sunday night into Monday. This system is further North but is the coldest as well. The models have been pretty consistent with this system. We could see several inches or more with this storm.
It still looks like starting around Tuesday the 4th the ridge begins to build over CA. One last system may try to push into Northern CA on Thursday the 6th before the ridge amplifies further North. Then we head into a drier pattern with the ridge sitting along the West Coast and the trough too far West in the Pacific. The GFS forecast model keeps hinting at a pattern change back to more storms beyond the 10th but I'm not seeing any other model support yet.
