(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

National Weather Service Reno NV
234 PM PDT Fri Aug 17 2018


Dry weather will prevail for the majority of the forecast area through
next week. There could be a few storms in southern Mono and Mineral
counties later today and again Sunday. Above average daytime highs
will continue although overnight lows will be cooler. Typical afternoon
and evening breezes are expected for much of the upcoming week, although
some locations may have slightly higher wind speeds today and early
next week.



The primary concern during the short term portion of the forecast
centers on winds later today and again Sunday. There is a very
slim chance that a few storms could develop late today south of
Bridgeport and Hawthorne...but they would be short-lived.

A trough of low pressure to the north will bring marginally gusty
winds to much of the region late this afternoon and early this
evening before the trough slides east overnight. Saturday looks
like a day with lesser winds. High temperatures remain above
normal...but a dry air mass should allow for cooling to near or
slightly above normal overnight.

A second trough passes by just north of the forecast area Sunday.
Timing on this trough will be crucial as it has the potential for
stronger winds if it crosses late afternoon and early evening.
Current models place the best potential for stronger winds in the
evening Sunday. This would not line up with the best daytime
instability so mixing would be a bit muted. Sunday could be a
marginally critical day for fire weather and also produce choppy
conditions on area lakes. There is also a very small chance that
we could see a few storms in southern Mono County Sunday as there
will be a little residual moisture and instability. See the Fire
Weather section for more on potential impacts Sunday.

The breezy winds Sunday evening should keep lows from falling as
low Monday morning as they would be Saturday or Sunday morning...
staying above normal. The NAM and GFS differ with their handling
of the trough Sunday night/Monday. The GFS holds it in place and
allows it to retrograde just a bit while the NAM progresses it to
the east. Either way...winds Monday should be lighter than Sunday
with high temperatures only a little above normal. XX


A trough of low pressure will move over the PacNW early next week
which will enhance the pressure gradient over the eastern Sierra
and western Nevada. The afternoon Zephyr will strengthen as a
result, with gusts reaching as high as 25-30 mph. Dry
southwesterly flow will prevail next week which will keep much of
western Nevada and the Sierra hot and dry. Afternoon temperatures
in the lower valleys of western Nevada will be in the mid-to-upper
90s, with some Basin and Range valleys reaching 100 degrees. This
translates into upper 80s and low 90s for Sierra valley locations.

By Wednesday, the trough will lift northward out of the PacNW,
which will allow the ridge over the southwestern US to build
northward into the Great Basin. However, these building heights
will be short-lived as both the GFS and ECMWF have a trough
brushing by northern California and the northern portion of the
Great Basin early next weekend.

As the trough departs the PacNW Wednesday, sufficient moisture
and convergence could initiate a few storms over the Sierra
Nevada and White Mountains of Mono County. Therefore, a 5-10%
chance of isolated storms will remain in the forecast. As the next
trough brushes by the region next Friday, isolated thunderstorms
are again possible along the higher terrain of southern Mono and
Mineral Counties.



Diurnal heating has allowed cumulus and a few showers to develop
along the higher terrain of Mono and Mineral Counties. These
showers will likely stay away from MMH. Breezy conditions have
developed along the Sierra front and will persist into the early
evening hours. Breezy surface winds are possible Sunday with gusts
up to 25 kts possible at terminal areas immediately east of the
Sierra. Lighter winds are expected Saturday and early next week.

Smoke downstream of the Donnell and Lions fires could briefly
reduce slant-wise and flight level visibility. However, most areas
will only see haze that will most likely not restrict visibility.



Gusty winds are likely late this afternoon and early this evening
along with low humidity values into the evening. While the wind
gusts should generally remain below 30 mph...a few wind prone
areas may briefly gust above 30 mph. There is also a very small
chance a thunderstorm or two could develop south of a line from
Bridgeport to Hawthorne. Any storms that develop would be very
short-lived and produce little...if any...appreciable rain.

Of concern later in the weekend is the possibility of gusty winds
Sunday. Much like today...another trough of low pressure is
forecast to swing by just to the north of the forecast area Sunday
and Sunday evening. The tightening pressure gradient and stronger
winds aloft could result in gusts in excess of 30 mph late Sunday
afternoon. But...current model solutions place the best winds
aloft and the strongest gradient over us after 5 pm Sunday. That
would not line up with our best daytime heating and would not
allow the strongest winds to mix down to the surface. The strongest
winds will be north of Highway 50 where brief periods of near
critical to critical conditions are possible. Having low humidity
values is not an issue as they bottom out in the 6% to 16% range.
Humidity recovery will likely be very poor Sunday night as the
winds continue late into the evening.

Given the nature of the winds not lining up to be strong over a
broad range in space and time...we will plan to just headline the
potential for gusty winds and low humidity Sunday instead of
issuing any Fire Weather Watches or Red Flag Warnings just yet. XX
