FVE had 1/2 mile vis in SN at 4 PM.  The "20 inches in the SJV" had legs.

Ended up as a net gainer here, which I wasn't expecting. Didn't melt very much during the day, although it became VERY water logged. Back to snow now. Actually not a bad base for the ski area, after all. 

Yeah definitely more snowpack than before the system.

Down here in the valley at 750ft there’s 3-4” of absolute concrete now.

It’s not deep winter but this stuff has like 1”+ water now frozen in it for 3-4”.  It’s gonna stick around.

Its a very November vibe after a mixed event with dense net gain.  Not deep winter, but it’s winter.

Definitely feeling like a win after bracing for 7-10 days of grass.  We keep finding ways in a shitty winter to keep the grass covered, some snowbanks, etc.

Yes. And the sticky snow that’s falling tonight really changes the vibe - the trees look really pretty. Great for those coming up for the weekend.

That area really had been modeled the last few days to remain all snow so no surprised it verified there, The wedge performed as it usually does but is never modeled well so that's where knowledge of climo takes over for us.
