(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
159 AM PDT Wed Sep 26 2018
Warm days and cool nights can be expected the next several days with
generally light winds. A pattern change is looking more likely for
the weekend going into the first week of October with periods of
strong winds, cooler temperatures, and increasing chances for wet
Warm and very dry conditions will persist as high pressure builds
across the west this week. Daytime highs will be near 90 degrees by
Thursday and Friday for the western Nevada valleys, but mornings
will remain on the cool side.
Area of low pressure still on track to bring changes to the quiet
weather for the weekend. The cutoff low will undercut the amplifying
ridge bringing increased winds to the Sierra and western Nevada for
the weekend. The best dynamics and moisture associated with the
low will remain north of the region, with low chances for
precipitation. The gusty winds along with the dry conditions do
raise concerns for increased fire danger on Friday and Saturday.
Check out the fire weather section below for more details.
By next week the forecast really becomes quite complicated with
Tropical Storm Rosa becoming an influencer on incoming weather.
Operational models as well as their ensemble members are quite
divergent with how to handle the pattern change for next week, so
uncertainty is pretty high with the forecast for now. For
example, on next Wednesday the GFS expands the eastern Pacific
ridge across the West, while the ECMWF brings in another cutoff
low with the potential for precipitation. Despite the dramatic
differences between the operational simulations, I would plan on
unsettled weather for much of next week, including cooler
conditions and increased potential for precipitation.
Light winds will prevail through Thursday with VFR all areas. The
next impacts will arrive Friday night and continue into the
weekend as an upper low moves through the Pacific Northwest. This
will result in increasing winds starting at the ridges Friday
night and then across all areas by Saturday afternoon. Latest
simulations show ridge gusts approaching 80+ kts while surface
wind gusts could exceed 35-40 kts along the Highway 395 corridor
east to about Highway 95. This would bring a period of turbulence
and LLWS to the northern Sierra and western NV Sat-Sun. Hohmann
Main concern is this weekend with the upper low moving onto the
coast. The models have trended toward more of a glancing blow and
into the Pacific Northwest. As a result, northeast California and
western Nevada will be more in the sweet spot for gusty winds and
low RH. In the meantime, it will continue to be very dry ahead of
the low with poor overnight RH recovery, but winds will be light
into Friday morning.
Winds increase a little Friday afternoon, but the main event will be
Saturday. The potential is there for some gusts 35-45 mph Saturday
afternoon with the strongest winds west of Highway 95. RH will
increase a bit as temperatures cool, but it still looks to be 10-20%
for minimums. The models have not been all that consistent with this
low, but if these trends continue and there is more consistency, a
Fire Weather Watch may be warranted.
Sunday winds remain gusty, but it will be cooler. There will still
be some concerns over fire zones 273/459 that day if the winds
remain strong. Those southern areas do not look to see much
cooling with it remaining very dry. X
