Thursday, March 6, 2014

Dry and mild conditions are expected going into the weekend. 

Meanwhile, strong winds are expected in the Lake Tahoe area and western Nevada due to a fast-moving storm.

The National Weather Service says a wind advisory will remain in effect until 4 o'clock this afternoon in western Nevada. Wind gusts of up to 45 miles an hour are expected in the Reno-Carson City area.

 

Note: The 5 gallon bucket represents the Northern Sierra 8 station precipitation index normal precipitation for 2014 (50.0 inches) plus the deficits from 2011-2012 (8.4 below) and 2012-2013 (5.7 below) for a total of 64.1 inches. The blue shading is what we’ve received so far in the 2014 Water Year (18.4 inches); which is the gallon milk jug plus the 32 oz water bottle. In February we received the equivalent of the gallon milk jug (13” of precipitation for the 8 station). The water bottle represents the 5.4” the 8 station index received from Oct. 1, 2013 to Jan 31, 2014.
