Ohhh, I just love it when the NWS map looks like a puzzle that Jared plays with, all those purdy colors.......http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mtr/

To make things more fun, Tahoe is going to get slammed with snow, shweet!!!!! Conservative estimates call for 1-2 feet above 7000 (I think we will squeeze more out then forecast). Two feet on top of rocks - brutal. Two feet on top of groomed runs, good times. No matter what, great to get snow before the holidays rush period.

The storm has the perfect set up of a strong low pressure sitting just west of Aracata CA, and a plume of moisture extending all the way to HI - ideal set up for major snow event.

I just love it when La Nina, that shy bitch, shows us a glimpse of her goodness....bring it on girl.....we want a full on lap dance ;-)

Paul - I would not trust the weather forecast that it's gonna go off shore that quick....they frequently over forecast this, and you can squeeze 1/2 more good days of solid wind.....your milage may vary, depending on your driving habits.

No matter where you choose to play - melted liquid in ocean, baything, frozen liquid of Tahoe - just.......

Get some, Z.

on on stage left we have the clearing winds, cranking up.....CA Buoy is NW 36 gusting to 43.......let's give it up for the clearing energy....

NWS just upgraded the forecast to ".FRI...NW WINDS 30 TO 40 KT. COMBINED SEAS 13 TO 15 FT AT 10 SECONDS." aka victory @ sea my friends.

...blow baby blow......can you say 7m/short lines?

Can't wait to........Get some, Z.

More dirty talk about the little girl...maybe some good news for the "inland kiter" set.

\Without doubt the strongest winds will be over the ocean
where momentum mixing is more efficient over the relatively mild
ocean waters and lack of friction. However feel confident that 45
miles per hour wind gusts will be widespread both along the coast and in the
hills. Also its a good set up for strong winds around sfo Bay at
places such as sfo and San Jose as well as the Salinas valley.

Today was a dud on the SC coast; if you missed it, you saved some gas money.

I guess HMB and points north were kiteable (apparently someone was kiting at Pacifica), but the clouds never really cleared further south.

If the sensor is right, Dillon was the place to be today. Note to self: always check the Satellite image before heading out to WC, even if the sensor is reading in the 20s.

Keep your fingers crossed that the clearing winds don't blow themselves out during the night...
