(05/18/09) Well Hello
again everyone and thanks for all the support. I wanted
to shair some news about the Racers.net Server has
gone though a hardware and OS upgrade. The server is
now a Green Server, running a pair of L5420 Xeon CPU's,
a RoHS 5/6 Server board, an Earthwatts 80 Plus PSU
all running on W3k - Runs strong, tough, and earth
i hope all of you are surviving the economic downturn.
Something that seems almost just as bad is our weather
Radar was taken out by a wind gust of 147 Mph. Check
out this link here for all the information. Click
(04/26/8) Nevada Seismological
Laboratory University of Nevada Reno has issued a press
release of the possibility of a larger Quake of 4.7.
We up here in northern Nevada have been having a swarm
of quakes for almost a month now, all in the same place
and most are very shallow. Its quite interesting to
watch. Press release: Quake And i have a script setup
for local quakes using Ken Trues excellent earthquake
script, check it out here: Local
Quake Brace yourselves and enjoy! Bob
(02/03/08) Holly smokes!
We are getting one of the best years for snowfall we
have seen in a long time. It has snowed for almost
two weeks and we have 62 inches to showfor. check out ./images
(01/06/08) Happy New
year everyone. As many of you have asked hows the snow,
it is awsome! This weekend storm has been one of the
biggest around here for at least 5 years. We have well
over 3 feet around lake level and 3 times that up higher.
(09/21/07) It has been
a long hot summer here in Tahoe. We had a span of about
84 days of no rain. We now have snow in the upper elevations
of Lake Tahoe, and we are forecast for as much as a
foot and a half for this weekend.
(02/26/07) Well well
now. Looks like i spoke to soon. We are now getting
our whole year season of snowfall in one storm it seems...
(See snowfall report here
Well as our long Dry winter has come to a close, we
have yet to see any real snowfall. Lots of rain.. But
there is always next year, right? Btw we are upgrading
all our computer systems. There is a new server that
we now running on and will be testing a new video cam
in the near future. Have fun and enjoy.
(11/23/06) It has been
awhile since our last news post. It has finally started
to snow again. The Racers Net server has had a few
upgrades this year. We installed a new 15k drive and
two faster processors with fans.
Check out this whiteout cought
on the weather cam shown in timelaps. It turned almost
completely dark outside for over a minute, (04/16/06)

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Reno NV
741 PM PST Mon Jan 21 2019
Winds are decreasing across valley areas this evening and so the
wind advisory for Mineral and Southern Lyon Counties has been
cancelled. Across ridgelines, northeasterly winds will remain
strong and gusty through Tuesday. Otherwise, forecast remains on
track with no additional updates planned. -Dawn
.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 219 PM PST Mon Jan 21 2019/
Brisk northerly winds will continue this evening before diminishing
tonight with the exception of strong northeasterly Sierra ridgetop
winds. Very cold temperatures are expected tonight before a modest
warming trend arrives this week as high pressure builds and valley
inversions return. Overall dry conditions and quieter weather looks
to be in store this week.
Brisk northwest winds and a few lingering showers remain behind this
morning`s cold frontal passage. Showers will diminish through the
afternoon and breezy valley winds will begin to subside this
evening. Winds across the Sierra ridgetops however will remain windy
tonight as northeasterly jet winds descend across the backside of
the departing low pressure system. Winds could again gust in the 60-
80 mph range along the Sierra ridgetops.
Winds across lower valleys will lighten as a dry slot pushes across
the region. This will allow for efficient cooling and very cold
overnight low temperatures tonight. Generally looking at low
temperatures tonight to be about 5-8 degrees below average across
most valleys, but as cold as 10-12 degrees below average for colder
valleys through Lassen County. Overall expecting low temperatures to
be drop into the teens across the western Nevada with teens and
single digits for Sierra valleys.
A quieter weather pattern will be in store through midweek with high
pressure building providing drier conditions, light winds, warming
temperatures and strengthening valley inversions. High temperatures
look to return to near 50 degrees by Wednesday. Fuentes
LONG TERM...Thursday through Monday...
Only notable change was making a slight upward trend in max temps
for next weekend, as model guidance seems to favor the ridge axis
remaining near or just inland from the CA coast. Some of the
previous model runs attempted to drop a weak upper low southward
into CA which would have brought a bit of cooling, but latest
guidance runs have largely abandoned that idea.
Dry weather is still expected to prevail into early next week, with
little or no cloud cover through Saturday, then a possible increase
in cirrus coverage for Sunday-Monday. Light winds will prevail with
typical (but nothing extreme) valley inversions most days, resulting
in limited mixing. Daytime temperatures are expected to be slightly
above average (40s to near 50 degrees) through Friday, then could
edge up into the lower-mid 50s by next weekend, with Sunday
projected to be the overall warmer day. Then a slight cooling is
possible next Monday as the ridge axis shifts a bit farther west of
the CA coast, in response to a shortwave dropping southward
across the eastern Great Basin or central Rockies. MJD
Lingering snow showers are making their way N to S in western
Nevada, mainly east of Storey county. Radar shows isolated showers
in Mono county along the Sierra. These will continue to dissipate
throughout the afternoon. VFR conditions will prevail, with
MVFR/IFR in heavy showers.
Breezy north winds today will lighten this evening into the
overnight, but northeast ridge top winds will increase. Thus,
turbulence will be possible Tuesday, especially in the morning.
High pressure will build over the California coast for the rest of
this week, with VFR and dry conditions. Freezing fog will be
possible tonight/tomorrow morning at KTRK/KTVL/KMMH. CL
