That is why he is known as Edouard the Magnificent.


Usually by the crew at Orinda Motors as he pays for their holidays with all the jobs he gives them.  ThU5:-)

Dear Blick, JC, and WeatherCat

Nah, I spill that duty with a buddy of mine who also gives Orinda Motors plenty of business.  In fact he should be paying the lion's share because he has: a 1956 Buick Super, a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, a 1965 Ford Mustang, and a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu.  Oh did I mention his daughter's 1970 El Camino?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

February's report (Re: Northern California 2016-17 rainy season.)

Dear WeatherCat West coast drought (? ??? ?) watchers, . . . .

February continued the trend well above normal rainfall bringing in 10.66" - 224% of normal.   As a result, the region has already received 142% of the rainfall than would be expected in an entire normal rainy season as can be seen in the current graph:



As noted earlier, the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center had a very dry outlook for March.  However, this expression of gloom and doom may have been premature.  The current 6-10 day, and 8-14 day outlooks have shifted from below normal precipitation to neutral.  In addition, this morning's forecast discussion ended with this rather cryptic paragraph:

Quote
Beyond Sunday models are having difficulty with the pattern and potential for rainfall. General trend over the past few runs has been wetter with the ridge struggling to rebound. This could lead to one or two additional chances of moisture. Needless to say, anyone with outdoor plans from Sunday into the middle of next week should stay tuned.

So as da' man sez . . . . stay tuned!!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I like your chart. We received 23 inches of snow yesterday (an all-time daily record) but I think that storm originated over Southern Cal before it came northeast to us. So I guess you can get them all but the water content of these winter storms has been great in the western half of the US.
