My season now feels complete, although it's never over until it's over. I've skied good (not great) powder on Memorial Day weekend in the Wasatch. It happens.
And, while we're talking about it not being over until it's over, we turn our attention to California. The models continue to show this prolonged period of southwesterly large-scale flow over the eastern Pacific and western US in which California continues to see storm after storm. For the next seven days, our downscaled NAEFS ensemble product is producing mean water equivalents reaching over 3 inches.
