This year's Santa Rosa is mostly irritating; but with a little luck it will turn out for the best. The meteogram picture above is likely a little off. Typically, the winds and precip amounts are underestimated and the temps are a little too cold. But it's a good indicator of what's in store. If you're trying to ski this week, you'll be in flat light and wind most of the week. There will be five to twenty centimeters of new snow up high and it will be rainy in the valleys. The good news is that it is here and it is going to leave some snow for the spring season, which is coming quickly.
It's still fun to see a legend in action.
