NOAA is tracking the remnants tropical storm off the coast of Japan that they forecast hitting California this Friday or Saturday. If it does hit, they expect it to be a decent storm. They are currently forecasting strong winds, moderate rain, and mountain snow in the Sierra Nevada.
The first snow of the season in September? It likely won’t be enough to ski or ride but it’ll definitely help get people fired up for the winter. In Alaska they call it ‘Termination Dust,’ in California is should be called ‘Excitation Dust.’
At this point, confidence is only medium that this storm will hit California. As this storm gets closer, we’ll certainly bring you updates.
