88.1°F Come rain dance boogie with me! It’s only gonna get hotter!

88.1°F Come rain dance boogie with me! It’s only gonna get hotter!

So hey! What’s up? Hot? Just a little? Yeah, me too. Unfortunately today isn’t the hottest day yet. Friday looks to be the hottest day of the week as the monsoon flow retreats farther NE and up the higher reaches of the Sierra Crest. With all this hot weather no one has an excuse for not having a decent tan this summer. Even my feet are tanned and I mostly wear shoes! Daytime highs should peak in…

86.9°F Ouch! That heat is starting to hurt. El Niño is springing back to life? I got your update.

86.9°F Ouch! That heat is starting to hurt. El Niño is springing back to life? I got your update.

Hello Friends! It’s soooo hot outside! I’m actually writing this in my double insulated, bomb proof underground lair. Two reasons. It’s cooler down here and how often will I get the chance to say that? Our daytime high just about matched Tuesday’s high of 96°F in Nevada City. Now I know you’ve been wondering about all these clouds and the huge towering t’storm clouds from early this afternoon.…

82.1°F Hot and yucky today means even hotter on Wednesday! It’s Tropical Tuesday and I’ve got your update.

Oh Hai! Just so you know. No. I didn’t make it this hot. I was actually hoping for some cooler weather. Well that did not pan out. High pressure has proven to be a worthy foe against the cause for cooler days. Wednesday looks even hotter as the monsoon flow keeps to the east only allowing a few mid to high level clouds to drift over us. Super unfair. We could so totally use even some evening rain…

81.3°F I’m back from vacation! The weather is the same as I left it, except for some smoke.

Hello Friends! I’M BACK! The Podcast is back. It was super fun being away but I missed you all! I truly did. The weather was both wild, erratic and straight up insane at times while I was on vacation, but mostly it was mellow as storm chasing turned into an epic trip of relaxation and contemplation. Yes! Life is good, but without you my loyal listeners the podcast is nothing. Thank you so much…

Time Lapse movies from Lake Tahoe and the Carson Valley

Time Lapse movies from Lake Tahoe and the Carson Valley

Hello Friends! As you all know by now, I’m off traveling and shooting video and capturing lots of great pics to share. Here’s a couple of time lapse movies I shot and put together on my iPhone 4S. The first is of a sunset on Lake Tahoe from Zephyr Cove and the second is of the Carson Valley from atop the Carson range in Nevada. Enjoy!

78.6°F Last Podcast for a week but follow my updates on FB and The Nevada County Scooper!

78.6°F Last Podcast for a week but follow my updates on FB and The Nevada County Scooper!

Hello Friends! It was looking totally epic on radar and then we lost the sun. Sadness.. T’storms are winding down as the sun drops into the sea.  I wasn’t super hopeful, just optimistic. We may not be completely out of the rain just yet. The upper level low is still heading our way and it’s pushing lots of deep mid level moisture along with some pretty good dynamics into NorCal. I think…

73.6°F It’s the water. It’s all about the water

73.6°F It’s the water. It’s all about the water

Hello friends! It was warm and some may even say it was HOT today, but to me it felt way more pleasant simply because the Monsoon flow was pushed farther east today, making me feel less inept as the weather cooperated with my forecast. The onshore flow today helped keep us cool by stirring up the air as daytime highs peaked and fell pretty quick as even now I can feel the cool ocean air…

82.4°F A cooling trend has finally arrived! Say goodbye to the monsoon flow.

82.4°F A cooling trend has finally arrived! Say goodbye to the monsoon flow.

Hello friends! Those t’storms I swear are killing me! NONE for you! I’m green with envy. Current radar imagery is lighting up the eastern Sierra as severe t’storms build then slowly drift east into the desert instead of west into Nevada County. Storms are brewing from Truckee down the Hwy 395 corridor all the way to Mono Lake. Flash flood watches are up as these heavy downpours are likely to keep…

78.2°F Bye bye you rotten monsoon flow. Cooler days ahead. Bad El Niño update and more!

78.2°F Bye bye you rotten monsoon flow. Cooler days ahead. Bad El Niño update and more!

Hello friends! So where’s the rain? I know! The Eastern Sierra near Mammoth Lakes down in Mono County. That’s where! There’s an odd weather phenomenon going on right now that I’m calling the “mono” Low as it has sat there over the last 2 days wrapping the moisture around itself. Kinda crazy but if you watch radar imagery you’ll see it too. This has really put a damper on how far these storms…
