I keep an eye on global infared. There in an strong Aleutian Low developing in the NE Pacific.

Thursday Feb 8, 10:37 Central

here are 4 rotating "lows" in the NE Pacific, one is reading 993.

National Centers for Environmental Prediction predicted frontline is a complete vortex centered at approximately 50 N 135 W.

NE Pacific Infared

To turn on their lines click on "NCEP fronts"

If this were a tropical
system, when it dropped below 980 it becomes Category 1 Hurricane.

Also, monthly North Pacific Low Index Deviation from 1000. Note only three years 1934, 1980, and 1983 when the mean low for february was beneath 1000. Even then it was only -1.4, -0.1, -2.3. NE pacific low is currently -7 below 1000 February 2007.

Californian's will be getting "weather" for sure.

Looks like rain through Saturday for Norcal and snow down to 5000 feet. Sacramento may get over 2 inches and Tahoe may see a foot of snow.

We need it...we've not had enough rain yet this year (in So Cal at least). Snow pack is low, too.

I hope this is coming a little more south than is anticipated...we really do need it.

Agreed -- it's totally a weird system. These are all well organized Lows, and I counted 5 as there is a sys just out of range to the north showing cyclonic circulation.

Looks like the tail moisture will make into Texas and the deep south. Texas, NM, Southern Ok, and Arkansas are in a long term drought, and it looks like they may get a break. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Horse People and other farmers down there.
