I guess if we had 11' on your Jeep, I'd be more impressed. A foot equals an inch of water on average, Sierra? except for the extreme wet stuff.

Let's hope the storm track doesn't shut down again.

Good sidebar (especially the snow part since this year is so depressing), but let's try to stay on topic here fellas. :)

Hey Eric,

I built this High Sierra Weather page, which brings together some of your resources, like the Sierra Snow Analysis, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... reports#8a

With Precip/Snow Forecast Models, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... reports#7d

With a range of Sat views, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... eports#6a1

Of course, a selection of Radars, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... -reports#7

Can't leave out the Surface Maps, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... -reports#8

Last but not least are the Real Time Reporting Stations, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... -reports#4

My favorites are the Mesowest N & S, these:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... reports#4c

These resources are tailored for the four-season High Sierra backpacker, so include as wide a range of relevant resources as I have been able to put together.
There is also ENSO data, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... ts#el-nino


Drought/Rivers/Reservoirs, here:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... eports#4c2

Scroll up from the above Drought/Rivers/Reservoirs resources to find the Fire and Smoke resources.

There's even more!

Caltrans Road Info:

http://tahoetowhitney.org/content/fall- ... reports#10

I've also got lightening, heat, and a very interesting overnight freezing probability animation, along with a very interesting almost-real time animation of active fronts, pressures, and precip. Oh, and point and zone forecasts for the Sierra between Tahoe and Whitney.

Check it out. It's an informative page. I try to get a many views as possible looking at this great kalidascope/puzzle/great piece of moving art that is our atmosphere. Or it can crush me!

Ha-ha-
Happy Trails!

Alex
