Sure it is snowing this morning. Yes there is a Winter Storm Warning in effect. (See the Plumas News.com Weather page for details.) And it is true that several Plumas County neighborhoods are still without electricity as a result of the current round of storms.
But there just may be a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel according to our weather expert Chris Fontana, aka The Old Forecaster. Chris contributes to our weather page daily with his expert insite into the weather forecast and what makes our local weather tick. Chris offers us this hopeful outlook for some actual Spring-like weather starting early this coming week:
Finally.... Spring Weather
Winter will end…..I know according to the sun and calendar spring started at 4:21 pm last Sunday but, after standing up 4 or 5 of my wife’s plants that just blew over for the fourth time in the last week, even I was beginning to wonder if this winter weather pattern would ever end.
The north state will have to endure a couple of more storms, one late Friday and the other late Saturday. However, these systems will be weaker and will have higher snow levels. I have been checking the Buck’s Lake website (http://www.buckslake.net/home/) and their camera isn’t working because it is only 12 feet off the ground and it probably has 4 feet of snow on top of it.
The one thing we will have to watch for this with the warmer storms is more runoff.
All of the longer range forecast models are now in agreement that high pressure will finally begin to rebuild along the west coast. This will push the storm track northward and out of our area. We will start to see spring like weather Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday through Friday the north valley should be sunny with temperatures above normal. The normal high for Quincy during the last week of March is somewhere in the lower 60s. It looks like the nice weather should last through next weekend.
