    Where’s our Halloween snow? Everyone else has snow:

    Colorado, Montana, B.C., Alaska, Utah, Washington, Oregon…..Christ they even got nuked on the east coast!

    I’m getting killed by these October TR’s from everywhere but here!

    It’ll be here soon. This isn’t unusual. Last year we got spoiled with really great snow in October. And after all the July riding I don’t even feel like it’s late yet. Yet.

    Nice pics BTW.

    Poor Californians 😥

    Don’t worry, you guys will be alright. I’ve been out only a few times in the b/c and while there is some decent coverage, it isn’t as good as last year at this time. It will come, don’t worry.

    I made the call on summitpost some time ago, that ski season will start in NCal sometime between
    Nov. 5-10. I watch the weather very closely. We got precip coming Nov. 1-8.
    5000′ foot snow levels in the Coast Range with several inches of water.
    We’ve gotten spoiled the last two years with late October snow. Last year was a record breaker.
    Ski season usually starts the last two weeks in Nov. to the first two weeks of Dec.
    We are right on schedule.

    AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
    400 PM PST MON OCT 31 2005

    .SYNOPSIS…AN UPPER RIDGE REMAINS IN PLACE THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING
    ACROSS NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA. THIS RIDGE GIVES WAY TO A WETTER…
    COOLER…CLOUDIER AND AT TIMES WINDIER PATTERN BEGINNING TUESDAY
    EVENING AND CONTINUING INTO SATURDAY AS A SERIES OF FAST-MOVING
    SYSTEMS MIGRATE ACROSS THE PACIFIC AND INTO THE WEST COAST.

    &&

    .DISCUSSION…BROAD CYLONIC CIRCULATION NEAR 51N 138W TO TRACK
    SLOWLY CHUG EAST TO THE BC COAST DURING THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS. A BROAD
    FETCH OF MOISTURE RIDING ALONG A 150+KT JET STREAM HAS ALREADY MOVED
    INTO CANADA TODAY AND SUPPORTS THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE UPPER
    RIDGE OVER THE WEST COAST/ROCKIES. THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS FOR TODAY
    WERE ON TARGET WITH H5 HEIGHTS AT OR ABOVE 5800 METER ALONG THE
    OREGON BORDER AND POINTS SOUTHWARD AT MON/12Z. AND THEY APPEAR ON
    TRACK FOR A 300-METER HEIGHT FALL IN THE NEXT 48 HOURS (THU/00Z_H5
    FROPA).

    THE H5 TROUGH PASSAGE IS ON SCHEDULE THROUGH NW CALIF ZONES AT
    THU/00Z WHICH INFERS THAT THE SWLY FLOW AHEAD OF THE TROUGH AXIS
    WILL CARRY A LONG-DURATION FETCH OF MOISTURE AND ENERGY INTO THE
    NORTH COAST BEGINNING LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUING THROUGH
    WED EVENING. THE FOCUS FOR HEAVY PRECIPITATION IS STILL ALONG AND
    AHEAD OF THE SFC-H85 FRONT/BAROCLINIC ZONE WHICH STILL UP IN NW
    OREGON. RAIN CHANGES TO SHOWERS BEHIND THE SFC-H85 FROPA. THE MODELS
    HAVE SPED UP THE ADVANCING SFC-H85 FRONT IN THE PAST SEVERAL RUNS TO
    A PLACE NEAR CRESCENT CITY BETWEEN TUE18Z-WED00Z. I CAN EASILY
    ASSUME THE OLDER RUNS ARE STILL ON TRACK AND THIS NEW/FASTER ‘FRONT’
    IS NOTHING MORE THAN THE RAIN-COOLED AIRMASS AND A STRATOCU DECK. THE
    OLD RUNS BROUGHT THE SFC-H85 BOUNDARY TO CEC AT WED 12Z. THAT SHOULD
    STILL BE GOOD BASED ON THE 1000-850MB THICKNESS PROGS THAT BRING THE
    1335-1345 METER BOUNDARY (SFC-H85 BOUNDARY) INTO AND THROUGH NW
    CALIF ON WED AFTERNOON. LOOKING AT WHAT IS GOING ON IN WASH/OREGON
    TODAY… THIS ALSO IS CORRECTLY PROGGED FROM 4 DAYS AGO. THE UPPER
    FLOW IS_STILL_ON TRACK TO PARALLEL THE SFC-H85 BOUNDARY UNTIL
    CROSSING 130W TUES NIGHT. STRONG IMPULSES ARE BEGINNING TO FORM
    IN THE H85-H5 LAYER BENEATH THE UPPER-LEVEL JET AND ABOVE THE
    SFC-H85 BOUNDARY LAYER FRONT IN STRONG SHEAR BETWEEN H7-H3. SO
    AGAIN…WE WILL SEE A SHEARED MID/UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM TUE NIGHT…BUT
    THE SFC-H85 BOUNDARY WILL REMAIN IN SWRN OREGON TUESDAY NIGHT.

    THE NEWEST RUNS ARE COLDER…SO THERE WILL BE A PERIOD SNOWFALL
    NORTH OF ROUTE 299 ABOVE 4000FT RATHER THAN ABOVE 5000FT WED NIGHT.
    WE CAN EXPECT A DEEPENING ONSHORE FLOW…MOISTURE AND COOL/COLD AIR
    ALL DAY WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT AS AGAIN THE FETCH OF H7-H3
    LAYER FLOW REMAINS ONSHORE AND DEEP. THERE SHOULD BE A MIGRATORY
    RIDGE ON SAT…PER ECMWF…BUT THEN ANOTHER UPPER TROUGH ON SUNDAY
    INTO MON…SO LEFT THE NEXT SUN/MON PERIOD BROADBRUSHED FOR
    PRECIPITATION. WILL SHIP OUT AN SPSEKA TO HIGHLIGHT THE UPCOMING
    WEATHER SCENARIO BEFORE 6PM.

    &&

    .AVIATION…3-5 KFT CIGS CONTINUING APPROACH…WILL OVERSPREAD CEC W
    TO E. TRICKY CALL ON VFR CIGS WITH DOWNSLOPE FLOW INTENSIFYING LATE
    TNGT. WILL DROP INTO MVFR CATAGORY WITH IDEA THAT ADIABATICALLY
    COMPRESSED AIR WILL EAT UP SOME LOW LVL MSTR. ACV BENEFITED FROM
    DRIER AIR WITH STRATCU DISSOLVING ON APPROACH OVER COOL NEAR SHORE
    WATERS. SKC SHOULD HOLD THROUGH 02Z TUE BUT SUSPECT 3-5 KFT CIGS
    WILL PUSH THRU THE REDWOOD CURTAIN AFTERWARD. DRY AIR ENTRENCHED
    OVER MENDOCINO COUNTY INTERIOR AND SKC AT UKI THRU 18Z TUE WITH
    SERIES OF HIGH CLOUDS RACING OVHD IN SWIFT SW FLOW ALOFT. LOWER
    TROP MSTR WILL BRING MVFR CIG TO UKI LATE AFTN TUE AS CLD FRNT

    Man, it’s been warm the last few days. From the valley I can see the wimpy snow coverage on Rose and Slide is wasting away.
