(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)

Very light rain/snow showers are possible north of a Susanville
to Lovelock line early this morning. Many valley areas have mixed
out low level clouds with much warmer high temperatures expected
the next few days. A weak system is expected late Friday with a
light higher elevation snowfall possible in northeast California
and gusty winds for lower elevations.
A cold front is brushing by the region today bringing chances for
light showers north of Lovelock and increased mixing for low
level valleys that have been stuck under strong inversions.
Many valleys in the region were able to mix out low level clouds
and pollutants in the late afternoon with ridge winds increasing
overnight to 60-80 mph. Winds just (~2am) mixed to the surface
around the Reno area with few gusts to 20 mph and temperatures
quickly jumping to the mid 40s, so you could say we mixed out.
Main change overnight was to significantly increase the maximum
temperature forecast in the valleys the next few days. Mixing will
allow for clearer conditions and much warmer temperatures in the
valleys the next few days with temperatures jumping back to the
upper 40s to mid 50s.
Another weak system is expected to brush by the region on
Friday. QPF with this system continues to look pretty meager with
only few hundredths expected in the Sierra from Tahoe north. It`s
possible areas as far south as Donner Summit area could see a few
inches of snow if the wave deepens a bit more, but current
simulations are coming in with minimal accumulation. -Zach
.LONG TERM...Saturday into next week...
Main changes were to continue to reduce QPF for Sunday-Sunday night
and also lower precip changes. Other changes included warming
daytime highs with the expected pattern.
A short wave ridge is expected Saturday that will give way to an
incoming trough. Latest model suite continues the trend of a big
time split with this trough. The EC continues to be a little more
progressive with it, while the GFS and FV3 deterministic runs have
the southern portion becoming a closed low and diving SE along the
This morning, I am trending more toward the GFS/FV3 as they have
more support from the ensembles. Even the EC ensemble shows a
significant split. Overall, lowered the threat of precip about 10-
20% across the board for each 6 hour period. That said, it still
looks like the Sierra Crest will see some light precip, but to the
east it looks minimal now. If the low does close off, the south to
southeast flow ahead of it is unfavorable for spillover.
Behind this trough, a moderate amplitude and mild ridge is expected.
Temperatures will warm under this ridge to about 5-10 degrees above
Gusty winds this morning with ridge gusts of 80 kts or so over the
Sierra Crest through 16Z. Mtn wave turbulence and some localized
LLWS will be present during this time. After 16Z, the surface winds
will become more northerly along with the ridgetop winds. LLWS will
cease, but mtn wave turbulence will still occur (along with
potential jet stream turbulence) through 00Z.
As for CIGS, the low clouds have mixed out, and aside from areas of
CIGS near 3000 feet along the Oregon Border until 18Z, it will be
VFR through Thursday.
The next system for Friday will be a wind maker with gusts 40-45
kts for the terminals in and just east of the Sierra. Mountain
wave turbulence and LLWS will be present in these areas as ridge
winds gust to 90 kts. X
