Weather Site News

(05/18/09) Well Hello again everyone and thanks for all the support. I wanted to shair some news about the 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 friendly :)

(01/01/09)Hi everyone, 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 here

(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 /5_feet_of_snow.jpg

(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. Enjoy!

(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.

(06/25/07) The Angora Fire as it is called is on the other side of Lake Tahoe on the south shore area called Paradise Valley. I have some of my own pictures here if you would like to view them. our hart go out to all that have lost their properties - ./Angora Fire 2 6-24-07 013.jpg or go here fire 06-24-07

(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

(02/10/07) 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)

The Racers net is now a member of the new Southwestern Weather Network

Well still struggling with thecamera server. (03/25/06) Meanwhile check out the new Avalanche video

The Snowfall report for 05-06 Tahoe Vista was moved. It was getting to big for the main page, 3/14/06

High pressure will lead to dry and stagnant conditions through
the week. Localized degradation of air quality is possible under
valley inversions. A pattern change next week may open the door
for a couple of weak storm systems but heavy precipitation is


No major changes to the forecast today. Main concerns are the extent
of smoke in the short term and the potential for rain next week.
There is still a chance for a storm to impact the Sierra and western
Nevada during the Thanksgiving holiday. While we don`t quite have
details for this storm yet (since it`s over a week away), it`s that
time of year to plan for winter driving conditions. Don`t be that
driver caught out on the high Sierra passes without the proper
supplies: chains, extra food, blankets, water, etc. Even if the
storm doesn`t directly impact the region, it is best to plan for
longer than usual driving conditions because of the holiday and to
have these winter supplies in your vehicle.

With very light transport winds, smoke should mostly remain on the
west side of the Sierra. Although there is some smoke and haze
across northeastern CA and northwestern NV today, some of this may
be due to strong inversions from day to day local sources of
pollution. Any additional smoke filtering in from the Camp fire
certainly wouldn`t help with air quality, but for the most part the
worst air quality will remain west of the Sierra and in northern
California. For air quality information check

High pressure will maintain its hold across CA and NV with light
winds and poor mixing expected through the next few days. Inversions
will keep valley areas cool during the day, with only modest warming
of temperatures in the higher terrain above the inversions.
Generally plan for little variation in temperatures through the week.

Run-to-run simulations continue to be indecisive with the pattern
for next week, including the potential for rain. For Monday-Tuesday,
it does appear that a closed low will first advance towards the
southern California coastline and allow the ridge to buckle
slightly. This may allow the storm door to open into the west coast.
Latest GFS keeps the chances for rain entirely in the Pacific
Northwest for the Thanksgiving holiday, while the ECMWF holds onto
the idea of increased chances for precipitation for the Sierra and
western Nevada. We will be monitoring the potential for this storm
to impact the west through the week and hopefully the simulations
come into better agreement with its evolution. Either way if you
have travel plans for the Thanksgiving holiday, be sure to check
roads before you go and keep a winter kit and supplies in your
vehicle. -Edan


VFR conditions continue with areas of high clouds and light winds
for the next several days. Plan for modest reductions of slantwise
visibility in parts of northeast CA today due to haze aloft from the
Camp wildfire, but overall smoke-related impacts to aviation should
remain well west of the Sierra crest. MJD/Edan
