(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

(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
108 AM PDT Wed Oct 17 2018
A quiet weather pattern will be in place through the weekend as
high pressure strengthens across the region. Light winds, dry
conditions, and warming temperatures are expected. The forecast
remains dry with no signals for significant precipitation until
the middle of next week where there are some indications of a
pattern shift to a more unsettled and wetter scenario.
Light winds, dry conditions, and warming temperatures will be
in store heading into the weekend as upper level ridging
builds. The strengthening ridge across our area will allow
temperatures near season averages today to warm 5-8 degrees above
average while lows remain near normal. This means highs on Friday
afternoon will warm to the lower 70s across western Nevada while
Sierra valleys reach the mid to upper 60s. Light and generally
easterly flow will be in place through the week with weakening
valley inversions and improved mixing expected. Fuentes
.LONG TERM...Saturday onward...
The pseudo rex block pattern, with a trough over southern California
and a ridge over northern CA into the PacNW, begins to erode over
the weekend as the low begins to lift northeast with the ridge
shifting eastward as well. How this low fills and shifts eastward
could lead to various precipitation scenarios for the region Monday.
The GFS continues to be the most aggressive in bringing
precipitation from central to eastern Nevada, while the EC draws the
moisture into Utah, almost missing Nevada completely. Will
maintain slight chances for showers across southern Mono/Mineral
Counties into eastern Churchill County, but anticipate better
We are still looking at a shift in the pattern across the Pacific
going into the final week of October with less amplification in the
jet stream potentially allowing for systems to reach the west coast.
The biggest question right now is how far south systems may reach
and the timing of these features as the trend has been delaying
these features. The EC has been fairly consistent moving the jet and
associated storm track into northern CA/southern Oregon and has less
ensemble spread, while the GFS has been bouncing around between this
region and farther north, well into the PacNW. For now, will
keep chances for precipitation for areas mainly north of I-80
Wednesday into Thursday with temperatures near normal. -Dawn
VFR conditions and light easterly surface winds are expected through
the remainder of the week into the weekend. Gusty east winds,
with gusts exceeding 50 kts at times, continue over the Sierra
crest this morning. This will keep turbulence a concern from the
Sierra downwind into California. Winds should be decreasing aloft
through the day today, lessening turbulence issues. -Dawn
