Skies are clearing in Tahoe... runways are cleared... and the little plane remains parked in the same spot.

That run was pretty much perfection for the foothills.

4" is enough to make me happy if it's cold and not melting for a few days.  

That's what she said.

Good snowstorm and for this particular area, the snow seems to melt rather quickly, 2'-4' of snow forecast and now the trees are bare free of snow in the distance?

They sure know how to do snow removal! This is a pick of the playground at the airport I’ve been keeping and eye on as well.  Full size picnic table where the arrow is pointing.  So between 3.5-4 feet at least.

Pretty quick with the warmup also. If we are able to keep a colder pattern going, this has top tier potential

The mean remains at -5C thru Feb. 14. That's not a quick warm up.

Those pictures look even more impressive than the Lake Tahoe stuff I’ve seen this week.

Currently 40 after a high of 44 and a low of 35. 
0.00” of rainfall on the day. 
Also I’m so so sorry...the evening runs are going to suck due to me telling my wife about the impending February 2019 redux. She brought up the subject, I couldn’t resist.

The quick rug pull is better than the slow rug pull.

Not that I want it to happen because I don't but if it's going to happen I hope it happens fast.....like tonight.

The way the models have been going a rug pull tonight may not mean a thing.

No melting today except for roads in direct sunlight. My high was 31F today. The tree avalanches that we get will knock all of the snow off the trees pretty quickly. When we get these big wet snow events the pine trees will have 24" or more of snow stick to them. When the storm is over one tree will lose its snow load. The outflow wind from that will kick off the next tree like a domino. An entire neighborhood can go from sunny to a 1-3 minute total whiteout until it ends. It's pretty crazy to see in person.

Really fascinating how the storm that's going to hammer Chicago with snow tomorrow night won't even start causing precipitation till late tomorrow morning. Never seen a storm blow up from nothing like that in the middle of the country before.

Rare, but they do happen. Looks like fun.

I actually told my sons that a February 2019 repeat is coming.  My son who has a season pass at Snoqualmie Summit is going to Cozumel for 12 days in the middle of the month and he is pretty pissed. He missed the epic skiing in February 2019 as well when we were in Hawaii.

Midlevel RH is pretty high. Doesn't need a lot of isentropic lift to initiate precipitation. Very dynamic storm.
