As I write this, it is raining from Monterey, CA to Redding, CA. Rain has moved into the northern Sierra and even sprinkles of rain with strong winds in Reno. It is 58º F, too, so it is likely to be raining in the mountains rather than snowing. Has the weather shifted to a wet pattern that will bring significant amounts of rain and snow to benefit the Truckee River? Has the high pressure that has come to dominate our weather gone bye-bye? If it comes back again to dominate the weather for the far west and southwest, then what?
